    He didn't. He invented a whole new way to do it: as punishment for not buying something.

    Do you have a cite for that?

    Didn't think so.

And you now have the government telling you that you must buy a government mandated policy with coverage a bureaucrat has decided you must have. And further the government is mandating that a private company must sell you a policy that they have no control over at a price some bureaucrat says they must charge.

    There is no more right to private property. We are doomed.

    You are right the HC bill begins to change that antiquated narrow view and replaces it with actual health care. That is what we are paying for HEALTH CARE, not some kind of lottery where we bet on what will go wrong with our health.
