Taking Advantage of the Health Care Bill

I will begin with this I am a capitalist and have next to no regard for government in general. That being said healthcare will be forced down our throats and since the Government is using force I am justified in responding equally.

I did some basic math, if I can work out a deal with my boss and opt out of my private health insurance for a 75% raise or bonus and go on the Government plan refuse to pay and take the 1500 dollar fine, I am sure I can find an offsetting tax write off to negate the 1500 dollar penalty. I figure I can pocket an additional 5k per year. I will then pick up my private insurance again as I age as I have no patience for lines or clinics.

Economically this makes sense to do, Has anyone else thought of doing this? It's wrong I know, but they started it in my opinion.
