Also I have a question why is this any different then it being illegal to not have car insurance in most states? Other then i can see one being federal vs state law, and if so was that the only difference really is who issued the law?
Driving is a privilege, where as emergency medical services are not.
Well, you only have to pay for car
insurance if you have a car. If you don't want to pay for car insurance, then don't have a car. Likewise, you only have to pay health
insurance if you have health. So, if you don't want to pay for health insurance, then don't have health. Everyone's happy, problem solved, next topic.
Seriously though, I don't see what the issue is. From my understanding, only the people who can afford it and choose not to pay for it gets taxed. We live in a civilized nation where most people don't want to overlook somebody having a heart attack, seizure, giving birth, etc. because "they are not insured". However, doing so isn't cost effective. If you truly believe that having a car is luxury and having good health isn't, then you should logically support the necessity of caring for others. And those "others" should have to equally pay for insurance as everyone else do.
