    So now what we have is the "individual mandate" being defined as "two freedoms".

    The Merriam Webster definition of "freedom":

    the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action

    Doesn't sound like the individual mandate to me.

    You said we have two freedoms and we used to have one. If the ACA added this "second freedom", then it came from the government. They granted us this mysterious "second freedom".

    By the way, we always had the freedom to buy insurance. We always had the freedom to follow a law or pay a penalty. Which of these is the second freedom the government gave us?

    I see you're relying on literalism again.

    Always a weakness of the right

    Or those evil rich people could actually pay for their own healthcare without ACA. Guess personal choice is only an issue with you when it comes to murdering the unborn?

    Isn't 'murdering the unborn' kind of like saying, killing that which is not alive?

    Would be happy to, GW Bush, now your point? What was the Democrat proposal? what exactly did the Democrat proposal cost vs the one actually implemented? Has the Medicare Part D program initiated by Bush lowered expenses?

    Oh, by the way did you support what Bush did? Interesting how you point to what Bush did as justification for what Obama is doing. Didn't realize you were such a big Bush supporter?

    Ever see a sonogram? You believe that fetus isn't alive?
