Obama Law mandates WalMart purchases.

Landmark historical legislation signed by Obama will force Americans to make a monthly purchase at WalMart, weekly purchases at Walgreens, and one visit a year to Wall Drug.

Well, not really, but he did sign a law mandating you buy health insurance.

What next, a law making you buy a new car from GM? Or maybe a mandate to buy lots and lots of K-Rod's widgets (TBD)!!!!! Cha-ching!!!

Where in the Constitution does it give the federal government the power to force citizens to buy a product from a private company?

And now the Democrats are demanding AT&T, Caterpillar, Deere & Co, and Verizon testify in front of congress for their business decisions and the unintended consequences of ObamaNationCare.
Verizon told its employees that it "will likely have to cut healthcare benefits to offset the new costs;"
Medtronic warned that the new tax on its products "could force it to lay off a thousand workers;" will the CEO of Medtronic be brought in front of Congress as well?

What other CEOs will the Democrats and Obama shake down if they don't campaign for ObamaNationCare?

The burden is not on the opponents to prove the unintended consequences will, without a doubt, happen; it is up to the proponents to show and to prove there are measures prohibiting and preventing those unintended consequences.
Sixty years ago this same mistake happened with wage and price controls and look at the unintended consequences we see today.
