    There is nothing unconstitutional about mandating health care and there are many advantages.  People must buy car insurance mandated by the government. Read a good post about this subject at:

      with a mandate is that people will be forced to buy a shoddy product which will not provide comprehensive or affordable healthcare.

      You don't have to have a car.  You do have to have a body.  A body is innate to the human experience.  

      You don't really care if your car dies.  If your body dies, you care alot.

      The insurance model a poor model which contains an inherent devaluation of human life.  People aren't cars.

      People will be forced to spend money they cannot afford to gain access to system which will not serve them.  So even the insurance model breaks down.  Again, a body is way more important than a car.

      Are we really supposed to believe that a Healthcare Denial Industry that cannot efficiently meet the basic healthcare needs of the relatively well off will somehow turn around to start meeting the needs of the poor, the millions who do not and often cannot advocate for themselves already?

      It's lambs to the slaughter.

      It's a joke.

      Please don't feed the security state.
