You liberals believe in personal responsibility??? stop the subsidies. Stop the massive welfare programs. Yep I am for personal responsibility--work and pay for yourself.<quoted text>
Well Carol, how about personal responsibility? What you seem to keep forgetting or purposely ignoring is that the individual mandate was the idea of the conservative Heritage Society, was touted b Newt Gingrich and signed into law in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney.
Anyone who believes that just because they're healthy today there's not a chance that they're going to get into a severe accident or contract some kind of disease is a fool.
The personal mandate put forward by Newt was to stop Hillary care. He knew the American people wouldn't go for it. It worked. No one in America wants the government to mandate then or now.
