What does a Healthcare Mandate mean? It is a promisary note to the healthcare investors, that they will maximize their investments if they push the bill through. This is more finacial games against the Americans. You will be Required by LAW to have insurance, You will still pay a deductable, still pay premiums, still pay for prescriptions, still pay for the visit. This is Gains for the Insurance c...ompanies and its investors, but another tax for you! Does anyone remember A.I.G.? "American Insurance Group" who got a big Bailout during the bush admin? Too Big to Fail My ass! Any corp that is too big to fail is too big to exist! This is another Wall street game and the American Taxpayer got sucked into paying the tab!
