From the Economix blog:
"Many Americans oppose [a mandate to buy health insurance] as an infringement of their personal rights, all the while believing that they have a perfect right to highly expensive, critically needed health care, even when they cannot pay for it. This immature, asocial mentality is rare in the rest of the world."
That was written in April. If people had doubts then about the "immature" part then certainly the town hall meetings have changed minds.
