I was against the Affordable Care Act (I won't call it Obamacare, that's just stupid and unnecessary.) from the beginning (Mostly because it was unconstitutional and it would and turned out did cause too many Unintended Consequences.), but I could certainly understand the arguments and reasons for it. But I still find it absolutely hilarious that one of (If not THE.) the biggest arguments for it was because they "Make us."get auto insurance. That one came up a lot (I have a friend who is a big Liberal/Democrats. He's smart and even HE was using that argument,). As if the two of them had anything to do with each other. Do people really not understand the foolishness of that argument?
I believe he was only arguing against the unconstitutional part of your own argument.
