Mandate or No Mandate?

Well, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Duh.-Fla.) says that "the new health care law she voted for last month does not mandate that individuals buy health insurance, despite language in the law that plainly says otherwise."

Who ya gonna believe, Debbie or your lyin' eyes?

Apparenty, some 36% of the states (or, if you're a fan of the President's, 31.5%) think otherwise:

"The joint lawsuit led by Florida and now grouping 18 states was filed on March 23 ... It claims the sweeping reform of the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system ... violates state-government rights in the U.S. Constitution."

To be fair, they're not suing just because of the mandate, but that is certainly a major part of the argument. Or maybe they just aren't paying attention to Ms Wasserman-Schultz.
