Just for the record, I oppose the mandate part of the health care bill

The part that mandates that people buy private insurance and that penalizes people 2% of their income if they don't do it. I can understand paying for universal health care through taxes, but this goes way, way, beyond that into territory that I don't imagine most people will be comfortable with. Guess what the Republicans are probably going to campaign on in 2010? It will also give the tea party fanatics something with an actual substantial reality to crow about.
