… the individual mandate will die. That’s right, the far-left liberal former governor of the only state that elected a self-declared Socialist (Bernie Sanders) to the US Senate, one Howard Dean, declared the individual mandate in ObamaCare will either die because the people reject it or because the Courts reject it.
Dean: The American people are not going to put up with a mandate. I have made this prediction before and I am going to make it again. By the time this thing goes into effect in 2014, I think this mandate will be gone–either through the courts or because it’s unpopular.
You don’t need it. There will be two or three percent of the people who cheat, that’s not enough to bring the system to a halt and people don’t like to be told what to do publicly…
Question: So, you expect them to drop the mandate?
Dean: Well, the courts may rule it unconstitutional.
My question: If even the DNC head says the Courts could easily call individual mandates unconstitutional, and the Oath of Office for Congress states that everyone will defend the Constitution against any and every person assailing it, why have so many Democrats in office declared it is not their duty to determine whether what they want is constitutional or not?
