Health Care Mandate Thought.

spiegelman:

If Congress has the power to force people to buy insurance, then doesn’t Congress also have the power to force people to invest in Goldman Sachs?

The rationale would be the same. More people buying into the insurance pool results in economic benefits for everyone, and Goldman is too big to fail so preventing it’s failure results in economic benefits for everyone.

I don’t like the idea that Congress can force me to invest in Goldman Sachs.

Or what about Congress levying a tax penalty if someone doesn’t make a mortgage payment? I’m trying to figure out what exactly is the nature of my objection other than “where do you draw the line.”

There you go with your intellectual consistency and honesty again. Can’t you just blindly support your president and party in the face of an overwhelming assault by the forces of evil? This is the problem with Democrats.
