Which would be yet another negative result caused by stacking the SCOTUS with partisan activist right-wing justices.
So.... if it is unconstitutional, it should stand because of this claim?
Even though the judges shouldn't make their decision based on this predicted outcome, I hope the majority votes for keeping the mandate so we don't have to deal with this increase in debt from a repeal.
And what else would it be OK with you for the Federal government to force you to purchase?
The government already forces us to purchase bombs, tanks, highways, airports, medicine for the elderly, and millions of other things.
Everything the government "purchases" is actually being purchased by taxpayers -- who have no choice about whether to pay taxes or not.
The idea that the government "forcing you to buy something" is somehow new is another fiction generated by the right-wing propaganda machine.
If right-wing Obama-haters get to opt out of paying for health care reform, there is a long list of things I want to stop paying for, too (starting with corporate welfare and our bloated military.) After all, it's unconstitutional to force anyone to buy anything, right?
