Yes. Those who don't buy insurance through their employer or in the private market are taxed. I know that. It's part of the "individual mandate" in Obamacare.
My question is, what is the alternative to Obamacare? If conservatives are so opposed to the individual mandate, what is their solution to the overall healthcare issue?
