Up to $3,800 fine for failure get health insurance
A top senator is calling for fines of up to $3,800 on families who fail to get medical insurance after a health care overhaul goes into effect.
The plan from Democratic Sen. Max Baucus of Montana would make health insurance mandatory, just like auto coverage. It would provide tax credits to help cover the cost for people making up to three times the federal poverty level. That's about $66,000 for a family of four, and $32,000 for an individual.
What about dental insurance? There must be millions out there with rotting teeth. Everyone has the God given right to dental care, don't they?. No more dentures

It's great to be alive and pumping oxygen!
The biggest problem is that our "Touchey-Feelie" society has decided that anyone that walks into an Emergency Room can demand free treatment which is just plain wrong.
This would be like someone bringing a bad fan motor to your shop and demanding that you replace it for free since they need air conditioning.
It would seem brutal to deny someone who needed healthacare or their Children, but just like hunger, which can make dependable employees, needing healthcare can make people work to pay for it.
