    The argument over the constitutionalty of a Health Insurance mandate being unconstitutional based on private property being used for public means is ludicrious. Otherwise a precedent would be set for Federal Government taxation of it's citizens. The taxation recovered for Government recovered from it's citizens were private being used for public means. Republicans are delusional and desparate...........

    Political Ideology:

    GOP: Conservatism, smaller government, lowered corporate taxes, belief in individial rights to work and build a successful life.

    Democrats: Get as many Americans as possible dependant on the Government. Demonize the profit motive on corporate and small businesses thru high taxes and government regulation. Appealing to as many as possible with promises for free handouts and entitlements via reckless spending from those paying taxes.

    Classic "have and have-not" mentality. Democrats want as many as possible in the latter category!
