    Yeah...you gotta love those activist Attorney Generals that spend the states money, as if it their own, going against the wishes of the state. God bless you Navy...your inconsistency is always charming.

    It is a fascinating case. You can read about it here.

    The authority of the Federal government to turn something as repugnant as this health care bill into law is based on settled law, and the Supremes won't touch it. As a matter of fact, they would see this as a frivolous lawsuit. So would the lower courts. Any lawsuit in this area doesn't stand a chance. All you can do now is bend over and take it, while voting to unseat those in Congress who supported it.
    Social security does not require all Americans to buy anything from a private company. It is a tax. I know of no other law that requires all Americans to buy anything from private companies.

    Car insurance does not compare on several counts.

    1. It is a state mandate, not federal.
    2. Only required if you own a car.
    3. Only required to protect other citizens due to your negligence.

    First of all, those are STATES. Secondly, the state isn't mandating that you buy a car. Completely unrelated.

    Also, it protects the bank's interests if you are making payments.

    That is the norm with any asset under contractual debt. However, that is not the main reason for auto liability.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Re: Mckenna says he will sue over Health Care Legislation

    It's ironic isn't it that the opponents attacking the mandate to purchase private health insurance wouldn't have a leg to stand on if the legislation instead implemented the public option as most liberals wanted?

    Nor did I say it was. I was just adding to the list before.

    The point is, you don't have to buy a car, and the government can't mandate that you do.

    Likewise, the constitution does not mandate that you buy health insurance just because you choose to breath.

    Re: Mckenna says he will sue over Health Care Legislation

    I don't recall the Massachusetts mandate that Sen. Scott Brown voted for and Gov. Mitt Romney signed into law has yet been overturned in any court. I'm sure they must be getting around to that.

    Uh, no, the states could sue for the same reason.
