Schwartz: Jail Time for No Insurance?

The June 18, 2010 Denver Daily News has just published Brian Schwartz's latest OpEd, "Jail time for not having (legal) health insurance?"

It's based on his recent blog post.

As Schwartz notes, if you don't spend your money the way the government wants you to, they could fine you and possibly put you in jail for willful noncompliance.

This is completely antithetical to the basic principles of freedom and individual rights that this country was founded on.
