"There are two Affordable Care Acts. There's the legislation passed by Congress in 2009, and then there's the mythical Affordable Care Act – the perfidious 'government takeover' decried and demagogued by so many conservatives (and quite a few liberals).

South Dakota lawmakers want individual mandate — for guns
"Lawmakers in South Dakota have proposed a bill that would require all adults to own guns, a measure intended as a protest against the individual mandate for health insurance included in President Barack Obama’s health reform law.
Adults over the age of 21 would have to buy a gun 'sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense' and 'suitable to their temperament, physical capacity and preference.'
The legislators who are sponsoring the bill know it won’t get far but said it’s a way to hammer home what they see as the unconstitutionality of a provision requiring everyone to purchase health insurance."
