Question:

If there is no way for the government to collect the penalty for those who refuse to buy heath insurance (under the recently passed bill) other than deducting it from a future tax refund ... then how will the bill "pay for itself?" I mean, all one has to do is make sure he's getting the right amount deducted from his paycheck so that no end-of-year refund will come his way, and there's no way for the IRS to collect!

"And then," as the Weekly Standard notes, "if you get sick, insurance companies are prohibited from denying you insurance coverage. In other words, the individual mandate is completely unworkable."

They’ll collect when you need medical services! They’ll hold a bone saw to your leg until you pay up
