Aztrader, it will work because people will pay for it. I'll use an example in my state, every five years or so the Dept of Revenue throws out an amnesty program on back taxes. People that have state tax liens have an opportunity to make things right.

Deal is, the state will drop the penalties and 1/2 the interest if you come in and make arrangements to pay your back taxes. The reason people DON'T PAY is the penalties and interest are prohibitive and people are screwed either way. The I'm screwed F them attitude permeates with tax scofflaws.

You go in and make the deal either pay off the tax outright or set up a monthly payment schedule and you get the deal.

If you give people a opportunity to save money they will almost always take it.

In 2010 Pennsylvania brought in $254,592,043 in back taxes.

People who are forced to buy expensive never used health insurance don't have money to spend on restaurants, clothing, entertainment, vacations to name a few items. When there is a demand in the manufacturing and service industries jobs are created. When you unleash hundreds of billions of dollars wasted and squandered in the healthcare industry into the general American economy, there will be a huge jump in jobs and wages.
