  1. Joe DuPont

    Andrew Johnson’s Arizonia Republic article about the evils of mandatory health insurance was
    encouraging. However citing Steve Forbes as one of the people who are against it does not help his case. If Steve Forbes was real presidential material he would stated that he would drop his own health insurance when the bill was made into law and pledge to refuse to pay any fines or resultant taxes for doing so. If he had any substance he would pledge to risk jail and fight it to the supreme court!
    He would also ask his fat cat capitalistic friends to do like wise. The public option and abortion issues were only smoke screens to give the insurance companies 100% market share under the threat of
    prison. It is so obvious what this shell game was. With mandatory health insurance there is no supply and demand. Obama Care is health care at gun point!
