It's 2005 in our wayback machine and the Bush administration, along with a republican congress has just passed a sweeping healthcare bill. Some of the provisions are, the American people are now "mandated" to purchase healthcare insurance from the insurance companies. Failure to do so will result in a fine or imprisonment. Medicare will also see cuts to help pay for the bill. The bill does not go in to effect for 3-4 years, but taxes to pay for it will begin immediatly. Can you imagine the outrage from the left and MSM had this happened? I can guarantee you that there would be riots in the street, literally. And you know what, they'd be justified.
