3. They keep saying the mandate is crucial but the entire notion is based on misinformation.
The premise was that there would be no mandate... that was the DLC and Gingrich / Romney position -- to have a mandate and use the "proceeds" from fines on the poor to pay for parts of the health care bill that DID NOT PASS.

Also, when they say the mandate is crucial, that's begging the question, and --

Are you telling me the liberal justices were so partisan as not to question the mandate -- an idea invented by the right wing which has been incorporated into the platform of the (DLC wing of the) Party and will soon enough be made a litmus test, like when they cast out the civil unions advocates... People are all too willing to say something is a anathema that they previously embraced)
