If not...why not. This is the basic premise of the constitutionality of the mandated purchase of health insurance in Obamacare.

I wish Congress had the power to mandate you stay off the internet after your wake and bake.

If we had a public option there would be no need for a mandate...

Yeah thats the crux here. Republicans went nuts for the public option, Dems caved...so now the mandate that's required to make this work because of the Dems negotiating is awful to them. Grow up.

Under this administration's interpretation of the commerce clause, yes.

I think the gov't should ship them to Mexico.

edit: Just got back from the VA mountain. Jesus f'n Christ there are a lot of fat fugers up there. It was disturbing.
