    First, it was a state deal. Second, no one has challenged it.

    And third, Massachusetts has the highest premiums in the country, and the program is already bankrupt. LOL

    I think this is actually good. It will give us all an idea of legitimately what can and can't be done with regards to health care. This is what reform is about.

    Funny how there's no serious talk of repeal; Scott Brown isn't in favor of repeal, for example. For all the costs involved, the people of Massachusetts appear to be satisfied that the goal of near universal coverage has been achieved.

    Except, many can't afford it. LOL It's an utter disaster. They have the most expensive healthcare in the nation, and you call that success?

    Mass. healthcare reform is failing us - The Boston Globe

    Meanwhile, their state is flat broke, and healthcare is the reason.

    Not to mention, a doctor shortage:

    Yeah, that's what all 50 states need.

    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.
    It will never happen in this country that one is forced to buy health insurance and if they will refuse they will be fined........

    The left will end up dropping this requirement............

    ...can't be "dropped" now. Obama signed it; it's the law, the WHOLE law. It can only be ruled unconstitutional. The CBO and all the basis for the vote will be null and void.

    Many, many times. You have busses, rail, taxis, bicycles, and feet. You are not required to by a car.
