    In what case did the USC rule on state mandated auto insurance?

    Speculation on your part. Other countries have sustained "government healthcare" with wider coverage, on less money per capital, and rank higher than the US.
    Which is nothing but speculation on your part. We have many different laws effecting health care that those nations do not. For instance, our tort system is unlike any other nations and the left (kowtowing to the ABA) has blocked nearly all reforms. Also, our higher per capita income increases the demand for medical care.

    This makes no sense whatsoever. Supposedly, the mandate is all about collecting for the uncompensated care that hospitals give freely to people. Outside of an er visits, hospitals are not required to care for anyone that can't show an ability to pay. They do it because the world is not filled with heartless bastards that need an institution that has spent trillions on killing innocent people (the US government) to tell them how to be moral.

    Unless, we address the problem of costs, "rationing" will be more common.

To pretend otherwise and hide behind the fact that Blitzer said let him die and the tea party audience agreed with him is less than honest. I did not hear any tea party audience member shout all LET HIM DIE. I clearly heard some agree enthusiastically with Blitzer when he asked if the man should die.

    You are quibbling about a distinction without a difference.
    The quote was botched and is misleading. There was no chant of anything and certainly not what was quoted.

    How does a person in a coma accept responsibility for themselves?

    So he doesn't die. Did you miss that part.

    It was more than one or two. I'm not going to argue the semantics of the word "bunch".

    No one shouted "let him die!", but a bunch of people shouted "yeah!" when the question was asked. What's the difference?
    No. Not a bunch of people. Two people. Two clods. Only two.

    Yes, you do. You are part of an interdependent network of people, wether you like it or not. The view you espouse here leads to nothing but divisive tribalism and the hatred of the "other." Your position is not a philosophical one, but rather just indicative of a stunted moral development.
