What do you know about President Obama's 2010 health care reform law? What part of this law was the main focus of legal arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday? In the report, what did supporters and critics say about this portion of the law? What is your opinion of the individual mandate?
  • I know that people do not want to pay so much money for something they believe they don't need. The main focus ios to get people to buy this new heath care and say they will need it someday. I believe that people shouln't have to pay so much money for something like this because with gas,taxes and morgage going up they won't be able to afford it.

What was your reaction to the driving simulator seen in the program? How did CNN's Lizzie O'Leary fare during her simulated texting while driving scenario? How do you think you would do in a similar test? Do you think that using this simulator would discourage distracted driving? Why or why not? What else could encourage safe driving? My reaction was that even good drivers can sometimes get distracted. I don't think Lizzie did so well because the scientist said you can get ditracted in less than 4 seconds. I think that people would cange their way if they did this then they would realize how dangerous it really is. Something I think could encourage safe driving is to stop texting until you get out of the car also you cand pay attention to the road insyead of talking on your phone.
