This video is less than useless, and mostly served to remind what a bad idea it is to chew gum while giving a talk.

Neither argument was particularly compelling to this viewer, both were too narrow, too trivial, too removed from the issue at hand. It may just be the nature of modern constitutional interpretation. It is very difficult to make the case that the founding fathers would be in favor of coercing citizens to participate in any health care scheme. It is, well, unAmerican.

I think we can separate a dysfunctional health care system (65% paid for by government if one includes tax deductions for health insurance) from the mixed US socialist/free market economy in which resides.

Why is the US the only developed country that isn't able to get this right? We seems to have a dysfunctional form of Capitalism that is unable to accomplish what other nations are able to do.

The American/Capitalist tradition... Greed. Do you really believe that the government is looking after your wellbeing? Or that anyone can grow up to be president... or wealthy... let alone speak their minds? Wake up and quit buying into lobbyist rhetoric. Do the math... it's just like network marketing... it sounds great until it's too late, and you've wasted real opportunities, because most of us are too lazy to do the math up front. Hmmm... isn't that how the Taliban got into power?

Seidman's debating skill is practically non-existent. Or maybe his side of the debate is just as poor as he makes it sound.

Healthcare mandates have already been tried in Massachusetts and costs have spiraled out of control. I fail to see what this is going to do to control costs. There are no price caps from what I read today, so how exactly is this going to make things more affordable. This is cop out by the Congress instead of giving us single payer.
