Republicans Don't Understand Obamacare

The reaction from Republicans this morning to the Supreme Court decision that Obamacare was constitutional just goes to show that they haven't actually read the law.

The Republicans are claiming that the IRS will be going after Americans who refuse to pay the fine imposed for not buying health insurance. However, the law specifically prohibits the IRS from collecting the fine! So, anyone who doesn't want to pay the fine can simply refuse to do so.

Maybe the Democrats should pass a bill authorizing funds to pay for remedial reading classes for Republicans.
