A Subtle but important distinction. I wonder when the deaf, dumb and blind kids in the administration and Democratic Leadership are going to take note of the fact that at the present time 34, I repeat 34 State’s Attorney’s General have said that they will file a class action suit against the federal government if the current Health Care Bill (the Senate Version) is passed making it mandatory that we all buy insurance.
This has the potential to lead to a major constitutional crisis. However, even if some deal were reached with the states, it’s almost assured that large private groups would sue on the same grounds, that you cannot require to someone to buy something simply to be allowed to exist.
More importantly, it continues to show the hilarity of Obama’s “I’m not an ideologue. Really, I’m not” statement to the Republican caucus.
