    I will introduce my self with what I think of the current discussion on what to call the Health Care mandate. Chief Justice called it Tax. President Obama calls it a Penalty. Mr. Mr. Romney called it a Penalty yesterday and a Tax this morning and the man is not sure what to call it in the afternoon. What does it relly matter what one calls it? What is sad is people with insurance and those who want to buy it are getting confused. Some of them think they have to pay this too. Why is it that no one has the guts to say that it does not matter a dam what it is called? Just that all free riders have to pay some thing if they can afford so, we don't have to pay their darn bills when they end up in emergency rooms? Your Comments Please.

    It should be called what it is, RomneyCare.
    He should be proud, he might not get to be president but he has already left a legacy to the nation.....

    Whatever it's called, will not change the reality that there will still be those that will remain uninsured, just as surely as there are those that do not even file Tax Returns. We will still pay for them. I believe that the Controlling Authorities want a bigger pool to draw from to cover the void created by their failed management policies. Puppet Masters are funny that way. This has nothing to do with better health care.

    You must love the idea of putting more bureaucrats in between you and your doctor. Then in true fashion you fail to mention all the free premiums that will be handed out.

    If people cant afford health insurance, Just what the fuck do you think increasing the costs will do?

    More government freebees.
