You fail to distinguish between the states and the national govt. The mandate is national socialism.
Federalist #45 applies to my argument. YOU are centralizing more power and over the everyday lives of individuals.
Your making a collectivist stand when you mention how it affects everyone else.
It's no different than saying, everyone benefits when there are government schools.
I'm sorry you don't get the connection between types of insurance....it really is not that difficult of a concept. Maybe you need some rest and to take your meds?
This is a logical fallacy. Thank you for conceding your inability to make the connection I am stating or refuting it.
