It is a matter of days before the Supreme Court rules on
Obamacare. To conservatives who
believe it all hinges on the individual mandate – beware.
First of all, the mandate has been
supported by Republicans and right-leaning organizations from Newt Gingrich to
Mitt Romney to the Heritage Foundation.
Not only that, the government has proven it can mandate anything it
wants. Virtually all of us drive –
and the government mandates auto insurance. If the fact that we could NOT drive, and opt out of
insurance is a major difference here, I fail to see it. The government also mandates our
participation in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, requires young men to
register for the draft, and forces us to drive on the right side of the
road. Our government, at all
levels, has demonstrated that it can do pretty much what it wants. So why this decision before the High
Court should be any different remains a mystery.
