    The court said it was legal to call it a tax. It was a wolf in sheeps clothing.

    The supreme court at the time leaned left bigtime, and then it only passed 5-4. Now the court is much more conservative.

    Think it would fly today? Me thinks not.

    The first thing republicans did was remove the mandate. That was the only flotation device keeping Obamadontcare above water.

    Elimination of federal penalty for not having health insurance may mean addition of state mandates
