Republicans Spurn Once-Favored Health Mandate : NPR
A commitee hardly constitutes The Great Republican Idea,
Pauly, a conservative health economist at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, says it wasn't just his idea. Back in the late 1980s — when Democrats were pushing not just a requirement for employers to provide insurance, but also the possibility of a government-sponsored single-payer system — "a group of economists and health policy people, market-oriented, sat down and said, 'Let's see if we can come up with a health reform proposal that would preserve a role for markets but would also achieve universal coverage.' "
In case you were wondering where your talking point came from.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

You don't understand what the so-called Obamacare is, do you? It does exactly what Johnny Centrist said, and a lot more. So, now that you know that the new HC law will cover those people, do you think they'd be happy if they had that coverage taken away from them?[/QUOTE]
You don't understand the argument is do you. The argument is not about helping those in need. It's about Congress over stepping there power as defined in the Constitution ( You know that document that is the Supreme Law of the Land).
