McCain Corners Obama on Proposed Penalties

Obama has asserted as part of his proposed healthcare plan that all companies not offering health insurance to their employees will face a fine. McCain has continued to attack Obama for not providing the details of how big the fine would be or how he would enforce it. This is the same tactic that formal rival Senator Clinton took against Obama in the race for the Democratic ticket. Obama has only said that the fine is not intended to produce revenue, instead it is meant to deter companies from being unwilling to provide insurance coverage to their employees. McCain has countered by saying that he will not penalize small businesses as Obama’s plan would potentially do. What do you think of Obama’s tactics? Does fear of punishment really work to bring about change?
