No, no, I like mandates.

The mandates work.

Let me, let me,

oh, absolutely.

Let me

tell you what kind

of mandates I like,

which is this. If it weren't . . .


Here's my view:

If somebody, if somebody

can afford insurance and

decides not to buy it, and

then they get sick, they

ought to pay their own way,

as opposed to expect the

government to pay their way.


And that's an American

principle. That's a principle

of personal responsibility.

--Mitt Romney
