    I meant to add, thirty-four other state legislatures have also proposed similar measures per the article.

    A ban on mandatory health insurance coverage has to do with this massive health care nightmare that's being proposed by Obama and Congress.

    Something needs to be done about Social Security and Medicare, yes, but not the way it's being proposed. Killing Medicare and shifting everyone to Medicaid is like robbing Peter to pay Paul. People on Medicare pay for that coverage (about $96/month) - it comes right off the top of their Social Security payment before the balance is distributed. People on Social Security who have the so-called "gap insurance" also pay the premium for that coverage as well.

    Medicaid, on the other hand, is fully funded by taxpayers.

    This healthcare bullshit is the political death of Barack Obama.

    Seriously, this president has so polarized this great country that he's toast come '12.

    And that is a very good thing my friends.
