With or without the so-called "public option", the Individual Mandate means ObamaCare is a government takeover of healthcare. That's because the individual mandate gives government control over the healthcare system by giving the government the authority to FORCE you to comply!
In fact, if you don't pay the Individual Mandate TAX, you'll face up to a $25,000 fine or even ONE YEAR IN JAIL!
There is no escaping the government-run ObamaCare system. This is the definition of a government takeover of healthcare!
Here's what CATO Institute says about the Individual Mandate:
"Simply making health insurance compulsory gives government as much control over healthcare as would a compulsory government program."So... We've been lied to... The truth has been distorted... And the real dangers of ObamaCare (the pubic option and the individual mandate) are alive and well.
