    An unconstitutional mandate says to all Americans - push for single payer, or suffer through private insurance.  It'll be their call to make.
    A large majority of Americans are not suffering through private insurance.  Employer sponsored health insurance is usually pretty great, and where most of the resistance to HCR comes from.  That is why Obama had to say over and over again in 2010, "If you like your current insurance, you can keep it."  And healthy people typically don't need much health care to begin with.  So it's mainly the sick and unemployed that are suffering with private insurance.  And those two groups are generally too preoccupied with survival to push for anything.
