    So what does that have to do with a Federal Program vs. a state program. I don't agree that the Federal Govt. should force people to purchase anything as that violates the Constitution. Romney is talking from a state point of view since ER costs are born by the states, not by the Federal Govt.(Federal Taxpayers)

    Do you know who administers Medicaid? Why should you as a taxpayer pay for Federal Mandates?

    It speaks for itself. The health care mandate is a personal responsibility issue. If you argue against it you are arguing against people taking personal responsibility for their own health care.

    Do you understand, probably not, that ER charges are paid by the state taxpayers, not the Federal Taxpayer? Why should the people of TX with their federal taxdollars be forced to pay for your ER charges?

    Interesting so what you are saying is that the States can pass a law that violates the US Constitution.

    Not arguing against it at all, just the Federal Govt. paying for it. ER charges are state charges, not Federal charges. The people of TX don't pay for your ER charges nor do you pay for ours

    People have a choice to live in a particular state, not much of a choice to move out of the country. The Federal Constitution doesn't give that power to Congress since ER charges are state charges, not Federal charges

    Exactly and controlled by the Feds. When the feds mandate an increase in Medicaid who should pay for that increase?

    Correct, and as usual Conservative is making it up as he goes along.
