I think not. Let me set you who insist this is so straight. See, there are many ,many people who don't even own a car and some who don't drive. Some by choice, some to young or to old. These people are not forced to have auto insurance.You are not forced to have a car, therfore you are not forced to have insurance.
If you don't want to have healthcare insurance for whatever reason you will still be forced to do it. Maybe you are healthy, can pay for your own healthcare or wish to use holistic care. Maybe you can't afford it. Now you will have to pay for it even if you don't want it. You will be forced to get this insurance with threat of a fine or jail if you can't pay up. This is your difference. a Huge difference Can't compare it.
This bill takes away your freedom of choice and forces you to pay for something you may not want to use. This bill is unconstitutional. Period
Get it now?

CHOICE being the operative word.
And LokisMama, the ass backwards part of this whole thing is that if they put you in jail you are automatically given FREE healthcare. How does that make sense? I believe Obama said a while back that the reason people aren't heavily in favor of this brand of reform is because they haven't don't a good enough job of explaining it to the public. That's still the case, except they seem to have forgotten to explain it all to show us how much better off we will all be. How patronizing.

I think a better way of reform is to get rid of the insurance companies all together. People never used to pay for insurance, they would pay the doctor directly for their services. If they needed to go to the doc, they paid. If they had to go to the hospital, they paid or worked out a payment schedule. Insurance companies have caused the rise in policy prices. We need tor reform and abolish the insurance industry. Pay Go.

So, when a crisis occurs and they can't pay, it gets passed on to ME!
This bill doesn't change that fact. It just make you pay up front for those that can't or won't.
