"By the way, if this is constitutional, Republicans should turn around and mandate all citizens be forced to purchase a gun. And a Bible. There's a lot more evidence that owning a gun and a Bible is better for society than everyone having to own health insurance"
Ann Coulter on Mandates.
Seriously, can you image the leftie response if they were mandated to buy a gun? Talk about a demonstration at the Capitol building. The republicans should put this legislation out there just for the reaction. I also think it will help the squishy middle understand what the mandate really means. Healthcare for all pulls at heart strings, it is easy to lose the argument in the emotion, people don't generally get emotional about guns. (I know, I know, some of you do).
