    Not health insurance, life insurance?

    Shouldn't we get our representatives to pass a bill that will make sure that EVERY American has life insurance? I'm sure many Americans can't afford to buy life insurance for themselves, and those that can afford it should pay a little more in taxes so that the rest of the country has life insurance.

    Where do we stop?

    Yes, the govt should require that everyone have health insurance. Then, when the policy is cashed in, the remaining family has to pay 60% of the benefit in taxes to the govt.

    Flood insurance. Shouldn't all Americans be forced to buy flood insurance? Even if you live on top of a mountain so someone living in the valley could be protected.

    how about insurance insurance? I think you should be required by law to have insurance to cover you in case your regular insurance policy doesn't cover you.

    This thread isn't about health insurance, it's about life insurance. Where's the Census Bureau's statistics on all of the unfortunate Americans without life insurance? Isn't this something that we should make sure every American has? Shouldn't we raise taxes so that we can pay for ALL Americans to have life insurance?

    if you did that no one would be able to afford life insurance because the government would require insurers to give a policy to everyone, even people with terminal diseases and premiums would skyrocket.

    Just like what will happen to health insurance premiums.

    There shouldn't be any pre existing conditions for Life Insurance. In fact... for the poorest among us, we should allow benefits to be paid out to those that murder their mates.

    You mean government mandated insurance isn't a good idea? You must hate children. Think of the children, what are they to do if their parents die because the don't have health insurance, and to top it off they don't have life insurance either. Think of the kids man!!!!!
