A new report released by Pew Research shows that more than half (56%) of Americans surveyed disapprove of the individual mandate component of the Affordable Care Act.
With the Supreme Court poised to issue a ruling on the constitutionality of this ACA provision any minute, I want to know what you think about the mandate. Will the ACA even work without it? Or has the government overstepped its authority to require everyone to obtain health insurance?
Take a quick poll and let me know what you think

The thing is the question is not very well phrased. This is not a sound-bite kind of question – it’s much more complex than “forcing citizens to buy insurance.”

of course it is. And since I know I’m preaching to the choir, I don’t really need to remind you that this is how ACA is being positioned by members certain political parties and other critics.
Real health reform is not going to happen unless everyone plays by the same rules. That means “everyone into the pool.”
It’s crazy-making. No one objects to the same system in auto or home insurance, do they?
