Well well well. Interesting, isn't it, how many Republicans had actually supported the idea of the individual mandate? I don't buy the excuse that their 1993 plan was a poorly thought out response to "Hillarycare". I think what "evolved" in the interim was the tea party, and the GOP's pathetic desire to pander to them. Maybe Obama should go with this throughout the 2012 campaign -- "They were for it before they were against it." It's not like that argument hasn't worked before.
