Mandatory insurance nothing new


Now that the government has passed health care into law, the Idaho government, among others, is suing the feds because, in part, they have no right to force everyone to have insurance. Three weeks ago, I was pulled over by a police officer (here in Idaho) and was ticketed $160 for not being able to provide a piece of paper that would prove that I have car insurance. I do have it and later proved it, but, well ... the case is made.

Ranting Republicans, please wake up and make sense. This country will never reach its potential until this unbelievable anger toward and fear of those who believe, behave and think unlike yourself is purged from its peoples' hearts and minds. I, for one, applaud the fact that this country finally did something to show that it believes that its peoples' good health is a valuable asset to us all.
