AUTO INSURANCE /HEALTHCARE INSURANCE. If you dont have healthcare insurance, you pay a fine. If you dont have auto insurance, you pay a fine. In some states you have to carry uninsured motorist insurance for the other person if he or she should hit your car. Is that fair? That you have to pay for the other persons auto insurance? You may also have to have healthcare insurance also. How is that difference from mandatory healthcare so you do not have to pay for the other persons healthcare when they go into ER for primary healthcare instead of going to a doctor? Both are socialism. You pay more if the people do not have auto insurance or healthcare insurance then if they did. Government regulated healthcare is not entitlement it is the same as auto insurance, you pay for both. Neither is free. You already pay for illegal aliens and their children when they go into ER. Is that socialism? We have many programs that are socialism and you use them. If you think this country is headed toward socialism, you do not know what socialism is. Those socialist programs work for you and you still use them. Over a hundred republican amendments are in the healthcare bill and they still complain. In ten years no one but the rich will be able to afford healthcare because the cost will double. Medicare and Medicaid is going broke because of waste and fraud. Obama has compromised with republicans but got nothing in return. Ram it down their throats because they do not know what is best for them. "I let no man drag me down so low as to make me hate him."
