President Obama may have won the election because the youth vote (ages 18-29) went to him overwhelmingly. Now, Obama is supporting a fine and/or jail time for healthy young workers who refuse to buy health insurance under his "healthcare reform."

Today’s news brings word that not only will people who refuse to buy health insurance be fined heavily, but Speaker Pelosi is seen on YouTube defending the bill’s provision to imprison anyone who refuses to buy health insurance.

KOMO-TV: Do you think it’s fair to send people to jail who don’t buy health insurance? Pelosi: 'the legislation is very fair in this respect.'

Further, White House Robert Gibbs is quoted as saying that the Senate may fraudulently use “budget reconciliation” to jam the bill through the Senate with just 51 votes if needs be.

All of my kids voted for Obama, in part because he promised to “fundamentally change the United States.” To say they feel betrayed would be an understatement. That they will not vote for Obama in 2012 is a lock.
