    If, Allah willing, the Dems use reconciliation to pass ObamaCare, do we have to follow it or can we just treat it the same way Dems treated the recently passed PayGo and just ignore it?

    Goose meet gander.

    In MA we will have to enforce our state's right to deny the fedral government encroaching in our health care. After all we already have 98% coverage and dont need this extra expense considering our state's budget defecit.

    Why did Dems vote yes and why did Obama sign it if they had no intention of following it?

    Because they believe in the principle "Do as I say, not as I do".

    Because they are progressives and hypocrites and need to be voted out if they are up for re-election in november.

    Thats my thought on it.

    So you don't have to follow bills you didn't vote for?

    Yes Frank we should. congress votes all the time for measures that they don't follow. looks good donut? paygo? then they circumvent that by declaring everything an "emergency" that's why we call em DUmmies.

    Here's the problem with that:

    Congress thinks it's okay for they themselves to ignore laws and rules, but they insist on fining and taxing (or even threatening jail time) to make sure that us serfs are kept under their thumbs.
