    that is a distinction without a difference.  An argument about activity versus inactivity might work constitutionally, but it doesn't make a lot of sense in and of itself.  "Free riding" is not inactivity, it's free riding.  Now, it might happen to be the least bad option even with the exchanges to pay the fee, but mortals cannot engage in "inactivity" regarding health, especially if the net effect is to cause health insurance premiums for other people to be higher as a result.  If there's a predictable effect on price, it cannot logically be inactivity, as no effects can exist without a cause.
