As usual, P.J. hits the nail on the head. He also said that if you think medical care is expensive now, just wait till you see how much it costs when it's free. The above quote is so simple and true that even Waffler may be able to understand it, or maybe not.

 -- Me, Here 
Reason #57 why you do not give the government the power to control buying and selling. The original intent of the Commerce Clause was to keep the States from imposing tarrifs on other States. It has since been transformed into a tool for Washington, DC to put tarrifs on EVERYONE and EVERYTHING.
 -- E Archer, NYC
 
One way or another that requirement will become a must do if one wishes to stay in the freedom of the U.S.
