There is no middle ground on this one because if the Supreme Court says it fails to grant the federal lawmaking process this right then Social Security, MediCare, MedicAid,and state mandates to buy auto insurance are ALL challengeable under that sort of ruling. So it is going to either a RADICAL CHANGE in the law or maintaining the status quo in allowing that right to the federal lawmaking process. We'll see!!

No auto insurance is a different horse. What the health care plan does is require a person to pay for goods & services that they did not personally order. A far a social security & medi care those are ponzi schemes and are probably unconstitional as well. Medicade & SSI is welfare those folks never paid in to social security.
