    "we"? You weren't part of that discussion, if you look again. Those of us who were discussing it weren't talking about the government giving people water and electricity.

    So there is no individual mandate. Interesting. I thought it was written into the law in order to ensure the law works.

    By the way, thank you for pointing out the government providing water and electricity for the poor has nothing to do with the discussion. That's what I said earlier to someone else that you didn't like.

    Eventually you are going to come to the reality that you are in the minority and thus the losing side of this issue. This country wasn't built on your vision of a large central govt. providing you with personal responsibility issues. You and I have absolutely nothing in common as my vision rests on personal responsibility, neighbor helping neighbor, and most social issues resting at the state and local level. Yours is one that supports a Federal bureaucracy that has generated a 17.3 trillion dollar debt and rising.

    So wait, now there IS a requirement to purchase insurance? Before there wasn't. Make up your mind.

    Is there an individual mandate to purchase insurance, or is there not one?

    Yes there is, or no there is not.

    No one is required to purchase health insurance.

    People are allowed to exercise personal irresponsibility and go without it.

    So then there is no mandate to purchase insurance. It's just a tax.

    I didn't say you said it.

    A mandate by definition is an official order to do something. It's an official order to avoid paying a tax. Pretty simple.

    This is a tax issue, not a healthcare or insurance issue.
