    Take a look at s. 5000A(e). Plenty of exemptions. It's not a capitation as defined by Hylton v. US.

    The penalty under s. 5000A is not a tax on property, and its imposition is contingent upon numerous factors, including income and the way an individual finances health care, i.e., a particular use of property, see Bromley v. McCaughn. Therefore it is not prohibited by Art I.9.4.
