Me either. THe problem, as I see it, is government. :D
OK, we all know that the law does not give the IRS the authority to collect the penalty, but if we think that the government will allow that policy to stand indefinitely, we're idiots.
If I was a greedy evil liberal commissioner at the IRS, I'd start applying the tax payments I receive to the penalty first, then go after the regular methods of collecting the outstanding "taxes." I would anticipate this being challenged all the way up to SCOTUS, who invariably would side with the government.
