Baucus plan: Up to a $3800 fine for not having health insurance

Now how would anyone not want this;

Just as auto coverage is now mandatory in nearly all states, Baucus would require that all Americans get health insurance once the system is overhauled. Penalties for failing to do so would start at $750 a year for individuals and $1,500 for families. Households making more than three times the federal poverty level  about $66,000 for a family of four  would face the maximum fines. For families, it would be $3,800, and for individuals, $950.
