Joint Cmte on Taxation sends Ensign written confirmation Americans who do not pay the IRS fine for failing to get health insurance under Obamacare will GO TO JAIL

Document here

Carrie Budoff Brown at Politico has it:

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it “Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold.”

The note was a follow-up to Ensign’s questioning at the markup.

    This is going to be rather odd- instead of draft dodgers, Canada will soon be filled with Insurance premium dodgers.

    How, uh….. healthy, for everyone involved. Or competitive. Or something.
