"This is the first time ever in our nation's history that the federal government would force every citizen to purchase a product," Schuette said Friday in an interview. He said it may sound farfetched, but if the federal government can force people to buy health insurance, it also could require people to buy General Motors cars because the government owns stock in the company, he said.

Could you clarify, Al?
Are you suggesting that the central government forcing US citizens to buy a product or service is the same thing as paying taxes?
Sorry if I misunderstand you, but I am not clear on what you are trying to communicate.
Also - sorry if a messed up the use of the quote function in this medium. I struggle to pick out just the quote I want to comment on - especially your stuff Al as you pick out myriad quotes and then comment on them one at a time. It gets rather tedious trying to communicate with you. Most days I just avoid you because it is more trouble than it is worth. You are more trouble than you are worth.
You are a true pedant. You irritate as much as I inflame and insult.
Admin - please note pedant is not a naughty word that needs censorship.
Oh, and Al, how is the mandate on birth control and abortion working out for you? Yeah, those Catholic institutions (at least those which actually give a damn about the Magisterium) are gonna really hate Odemon-care, aren't they?
I really don't get you. If you cared about the Faith, you would fight against Odumbo Care, and support Catholic health institutions. But you choose to go the big government route. That is your panacea - your heaven on earth. That you cannot see the distinction between heaven and earthly, diabolical, Utopian dreams speaks volumes.
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." -Marcus Tullius Cicero
