    Congressman Ron Paul has officially introduced his legislation to repeal the federal health insurance mandate. The bill is titled "End the Mandate." The bill number is HR 4995.

    Ron Paul: "I want to get rid of one item to concentrate on,because i think it's the worst part. And that is the mandate saying that you don't have a choice anymore."

    WTG Dr. Paul! Lets hope the People get behind Dr. Paul and his new legislation. More Freedom & Liberty for the People,not less.

    I would be willing to support this IF as part of this legislation, the US Government would allow hospital emergency rooms to turn away any and all patients that cannot prove they can afford the care they are asking for.

    What do you care what Ron Paul says now? Rs hated that man's guts during the campaign. They called him crazy and did not take him seriously at all!

    Let's see where Dr. Paul takes this. I personally think he's pretty smart and he has a lot of support but it's doubtful he'll get any help from Rs in congress.

    Actually, I hope he just addresses the individual mandate.

    Simplicity.

    Make Congress vote on this specific item. Adding other items gives them "plausible deniability" that their vote was based on the other issues.

    Although I want the mandate gone, I can't agree with this for it still leaves the entitlement in place which is just as much of a travesty.

    Keep it in, demand the repeal of the whole thing before it destroys us. Every lessening of the pain just decreases the leverage and speed in which it will be done away with.

    Bingo! First things first. He feels he needs to focus on the worst part first. I'm with him all the way.
