Actually, don't you think that the individual mandate is really no different than having to have car insurance (which in and of itself is an individual mandate); where it would be unfair for one or some to drive around without insurance, and when they are in an accident the person/people with insurance have to pay for that person's lack of insurance?

Ok is this issue about having health care insurance OR having access to good health care??? For me definitely about access to good health care at an affordable rate. Will we get that if we are made to carry health insurance?? What are the initiatives to recruit students to become good doctors and care about their patients??

Well, that's been the case for pretty much everybody I know ... one story said that insurance premiums have gone up by 30% yearly over the past 5 years for a lot of people!!! And, of course, with that comes a decrease in the services that are provided. Considering that many of the changes that will actually affect premiums, payments, services and quality have not gone into effect yet .... and won't for another two years ... whether or not health care will be more or less expensive than it is...

I'm not a fan of the individual mandate, but before we continue debate on which way is right how about some accountability? If a person can afford it but doesn't want to opt in and they get sick, then sin loy. I think everyone agrees that something needed to be done other than the usual congressional hot air, but we will have to see if this was the right decision ofr not. From what I've read, it is estimated that if nothing was done then cost were expected to nearly double by 2016.

I love my prez....lord knows I do. But! I'm gonna have to come to his defense on this. Cuz my thinking is....folks care MORE about their cars than their own bodies. And you can always get a new car....but not a new body. And if a person wants to drive a car, he/she must register that car, have insurance to drive that car and have current tags. Now we would make sure those things get done for our cars, but we don't wanna pay health care for ourselves. Folks call it tax, others can it fees.
