That is a Great Question
My friend Stephen Green, otherwise known as “The Vodkapundit,” points out from the high plains of Colorado something rather hypocritical about many universal health care advocates.
If it’s wrong to draft people into the armed forces — and I believe it is — then where’s the right in drafting people into the insurance system?
An insurance “mandate” is an insurance industry draft, plain and simple. But there’s no deferment, the certainly no 4F, and running off to Canada would only make things worse.
The same question could be asked about Social Security and Medicare.
