Wait… yeah!

Jon Cohn makes a point that seems so smart, I wish I’d thought of it first.  If the individual mandate is so bad because – evidently for the first time in history – it involves government forcing you to buy a private product, then why have so many conservatives in the past (and present) advocated for privitizing Social Security?  Would that not be government forcing you to buy a private product?

Was that unconstitutional?  Was that tyranny?  Is it still?  Will no one speak out on this gross overstep of government on the slippery slope to fascism?

UPDATE by Austin: If you read Cohn, read both of his posts: part 1part 2.
