    Which was by no means a mandate.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    As someone who supported the Tea Party movement, I ask why the **** happened in the 2012 GOP primaries?

    Mitt is not part of the Tea Party crowd. Mitt is the polar opposite, he created RomneyCare.

    The states have had 200+ years to do so, and they have utterly failed.[/QUOTE]

    Any why is that? Mitt Romney managed did he not? I'm sure that Massachusetts or one of the many states with huge democratic majorities could have come up with a far better system then this one, which is simply another tax from the poor to the rich.

    The Affordable Care Act is virtually identical to what Romney did in Massachusetts. And the other 49 states have worse health care systems. If one of the other states could come up with a far better system than this one, then why haven't they? In any case, states are still allowed to opt out of ACA if they have an alternative system which covers at least as many people and offers the same consumer protections...a couple states, Vermont and Oregon, are planning to do exactly that so that they can institute single-payer.

    which is simply another tax from the poor to the rich.
    That's just absurd. The ACA is very progressive; it provides Medicaid and/or subsidies to the poor and middle-class to enable them to buy insurance, and most of the taxes to pay for it come from the wealthy. You are just factually wrong; I suggest actually reading the provisions of the ACA and their impact on the economy before you make ridiculous claims like "it's a tax from the poor to the rich."

    Virtually identical, except, completely different.
