Prosperity by Mandate


In light of today's Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare, this was posted on Facebook: ‎"Health care for everybody, by making it illegal not to have health care. It's so simple, why didn't we think of this before?" — Tim Slagle

This actually reminded me of a comic book quote.  In Batman and Son #2 by Grant Morrison, Bruce Wayne says: "...while we're at it, let's make wealth compulsory. It would solve so many of the world's problems if everyone were a millionaire, don't you think?"
