I love the mandate. We should have never opposed it. The law itself sabotages the mandate. The apparent best and brightest wrote a law dumber than soup.

It does not need to be replaced...just repeal it and return to normalcy; if normalcy can be improved---such as allowing interstate competition---so much the better.
