INDIVIDUAL MANDATES Individual mandate to buy healthcare should not be unconstitutional. Healthcare is not a product like broccolli but a service like auto insurance that everyone who has a body should be required to have in case of an illness or accident that send one to ER for medical care that would burden the tax payers. If an individual mandate that everyone who has a body buy healthcare is unconstitutional then mandate that every auto owner to buy auto insurance should be unconstitutional also. Mandate that auto owners buy auto insurance protect everyone who won a car and drive it. A liability like healthcare and auto insurance is for our own protection. I cannot understand why anyone who has a body do not want healthcare coverage? Or has a car do not want auto insurance? Some state require you to buy uninsured motorist coverage that protect you form a drive who do not have insurance coverage. If someone hits you that do not have auto insurance, you are covered. But file a claim against your uninsured motorist coverage and your premiums will go up. We pay for medical uninsured by higher hospital charges and higher medical care premiums. An elderly friend of mine refused to buy into Medicare and had a stroke and guess who paid her bill? The county? Guess who that is? Taxpayers. Illegal aliens are not required to carry Medical insurance and use ER for their primary physicians and for delivery reimbursed by the county or state. Tax payers. HAWC medical and dental clinic here in Reno,NV has 90% of their patient are illegal or Hispanic and they pay a discount of $40 and the county or state pay the rest of $125. If the Constitution state it is not constitutional to mandate one to buy healthcare then the Constitution needs to be amended because this is not 1776 and doctors do not accept chickens and corn as payment for medical care. There was a time when auto insurance and driver license were no required either. I should not be required to pay for another persons medical care if they are financially able to provide for their own. Like illegal aliens who drive into ER in Escalades for free medical care.
