Undocumented vs Uninsured
« on: June 19, 2014, 07:01:55 AM »
Scratching my head on this one.  Why is it UNREASONABLE we return (can't think of proper word for "send back to nation of origin".  Is it "deported"?) 14 million illegal aliens to their countries of birth BUT perfectly reasonable to force 30,000,000 to get insurance and another 300,000,000 to adjust insurance they currently possess?

Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

The mechanics of each are slightly different, to say the least.  Deportation involves the search for, and physical seizure of, uncooperative individuals; that is the sine qua non of deportation.  Mandating insurance does not.
