Rep. Wasserman Schultz didn't much care for the reception she received at a townhall on ObamaCare and the economy. I found her answer on the mandate question especially annoying. About 7 minutes into this video going around she was asked what gave Congress the authority to mandate for everyone.
She said there is no such mandate, ... you just suddenly find your way into a differentif you don't buy it. That seems like a pretty clear admission of the Democrat's willingness to use code to compel whatever individual behavior they would like. Given that precedent, it seems to me they can then use it to all but force Americans to do whatever Congress decides. How do you like that new GM car you just bought to avoid a higher tax bracket, America? Please. What a transparent ploy to try and end run the mandate question.
