Don't Like the Individual Mandate? Earn Less Money!



Here's the quote:

President Obama's solicitor general, defending the national health care law on Wednesday, told a federal appeals court that Americans who didn't like the individual mandate could always avoid it by choosing to earn less money.

Well, lower earnings will result in lower tax revenues and our nifty progressive tax system will amplify the impact of those lower tax revenues. On the other hand, maybe this explains all the bad economic news of late--Americans en masse are trying to avoid Obamacare's individual mandate.
