"[T]he discussion of President Obama’s federal policy requiring that everyone obtain health insurance has frequently focused on the fact that either an employer or individual would be forced to obtain private health insurance instead of, as Wikipedia points it out, 'or in addition to the institution of a national health service of insurance.' And many have suggested that this is a very unusual measure since it mandates specific performance from citizens, contrary to the legal tradition of the country." (02/16/12)
