After re-reading your post again, I have to agree THIS is a major question which the lefties in here--or anywhere else for that matter---will not answer, either because they have no legit response, or because they haven't found a way to spin it correctly yet. In either case, you hit the basic premise on the head--there is NO reason in a free country(which we USED to have here), should a person be forced to buy health coverage mandated by the govt. This happens ONLY in socialist countries, or is provided by in communist countries. Libs--where is your defense of gatorchamps0607 question??? Why is it none of you will step up and defend this basic premise? Please defend and justify, and then answer his question.
