Liberal Congresswoman Really Thinks You're That Stupid
Rep. Wasserman Schultz Insists Health Care Law Doesn't Require Individuals to Buy Insurance

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.) is insisting that the new health care law she voted for last month does not mandate that individuals buy health insurance, despite language in the law that plainly says otherwise.
At an April 5 town hall meeting in Fort Lauderdale (see video below), a constituent asked Wasserman Shultz where the Constitution authorized Congress to mandate that individuals buy health insurance. She responded that the new health care law did not require individuals to buy health insurance.
In a written statement to CNSNews.com on Wednesday, her press secretary, Jonathan Beeton, said it was true that the health care law did not mandate that individuals buy health insurance and that Wasserman Schultz stood by her assertion at the townhall meeting.
“We actually have not required in this law that you carry health insurance,” Wasserman Schultz said at the townhall meeting.
“Yes, this is accurate,” Beeton said in his statement to CNSNews.com. “You have a choice of insuring yourself with affordable coverage, or paying an assessment that will offset the burden you place on other insured Americans and taxpayers by not being insured.”
Not only has the Democrat Party passed a law that a strong majority of this country rejected, this party believes you are stupid enough to think you are not punished when you refuse to participate. I suppose when the IRS denies your tax refund because you failed to purchase this "optional" health insurance, the reminder will be "it was your choice".
