Mandate = Tax

Michael Tanner makes an excellent point in an editorial printed in the Sept. 24 New York Post, "Sorry, O: It is a tax":

Think of it this way: If the government took money directly from you, then turned around and gave it to an insurance company, everyone would agree that you've been taxed. How is that any different from the government mandating that you pay the insurer directly?
