    Maybe, the idea that health care, 1/6 of the economy, etc. is “less important” is the reason something talked about at least from the days of the Truman Administration was never passed until 2010.

    I’m not sure why you need a reason other than the mandate to explain people disliking the ACA. No matter how you feel about the issues, it’s incredibly simple to make the mandate sound terrible. Nobody likes to be told what to do.

  3. Joe says:

    We are told what to do in any number of ways, often not getting the stuff the PPACA offers in return in the process.

    Yes, I don’t like to be told to pay taxes, but I do.
