    for the guy who swore he'd never sign a bill with an individual mandate.

    Argue 'till your lips fall off.  Who cares?

    It was a deceitful bait and switch and people will continue to be pissed about it.

      But he changed his mind when experts confronted him with evidence that the mandate was necessary.

      I kind of like my elected officials to change their mind when they learn new evidence that should make them reconsider positions.

      Also, I suspect a very small portion of the primary electorate preferred Obama over Clinton for that one policy difference. Voters have  a great many reasons for making their decisions like they do.
