All of these arguments for or against are moot seeing as Congress has absolutely no authority under the Constitution to mandate every citizen to buy a product.

There are already a dozen or more states that are planning to file suit against the federal government as soon as this is signed into law. This will quickly make its way to the Supreme Court where it should be unceremoniously tossed into the trash pile of congressional follies.

If it does stand, I plan to take full advantage of what our Democrat friends have done. I will negotiate with my employer to pay me cash instead of insurance, then I will refuse to buy insurance and pay the $750 annual fine to the IRS. Then, because I cannot be denied a policy whenever I decide to apply for one, I will buy insurance if, and only if, I come down with a serious illness.
