Taxing your existence

Never before has the United States Government taxed its citizens just for existing.  Both the proposed House and the proposed Senate health care reform bills plan to tax you if you fail to participate.

Does the American public truly understand the impact of allowing the federal government to tax individuals based on what such individuals do not do, the equivalent of a tax on one's mere existence?

Taxing inaction destroys our right to be left alone, which is one of the foundations of liberty in this country. The implications of such a tax as a tool of political coercion truly are revolutionary.
