I set the area in question to bold. From this it does look like it will be the same case as income tax. It's not legal to enforce, but they will
anyway na na na boo boo what ya gunna do?
It will be just like not paying any federal debt, they many not throw you in jail, but good luck ever buying a house or getting a loan where they
check for federal debt before hand.
Also read "(2) SPECIAL RULES.—Notwithstanding any other provision
of law—" That means that they CAN take other measures to force you to legally pay by bringing civil suit or arresting you for something unrelated
and including that federal debt into what ever pay off deal they offer you. So if you were to get a warrant for an expired inspection and get arrested
for that, they could roll the ACA fees into any release plea for that minor charge and hold you indefinitely without trial under the NDAA for being a
civil terrorist as owing money to the federal govt falls under the NDAA and is considered terrorism.
Not the most solid of ground to stand on.....
