Mandated healthcare or pay the penalty!

Okay, I have to write a short statement about my view of gov. mandated health care or having a penalty for those who don’t purchase healthcare coverage. I know my postion, that this idea is oversteping the bounds of the fed. gov, it’s certainly unconstitutional, impossible to enforce and costly to boot! I am having trouble staying focused, as I could write for one week solid just ranting about this topic! I need one good resource to reference in the statement, and I am having trouble finding somthing online. Does anyone know anywhere I can get some good solid and objective data supporting this view point. It seems like whatever i find on either side of the argument is full of opinions or bias, and I need FACTS! Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
