    We already knew that. I'm the one who pointed out that it's a tax, as defined by SCOTUS.

    The government handing out water and electricity to the poor has nothing to do with citizens being taxed for not buying a third party's goods or services.

    The govt has the power to assess a tax penalty if you don't buy health insurance. No one is forced to buy health insurance

    I'm still waiting to find out what else we can be taxed for not purchasing from a third party.

    And people keep saying the government isn't forcing people to buy anything. So apparently there is no individual mandate.

    No it doesn't. They don't tax you if you don't buy electricity. They don't tax you if you don't buy tap water.

    The individual mandate is being discussed, not government spending.

    So there's no individual mandate then.

    So what? That has nothing to do with this discussion

    Actually, we were talking about the tax penalty, which is not "government spending"
