    CNN's Roberts: Why Is a 'Mandate for Having Health Insurance a Bad Thing? There's a Mandate for Having Car Insurance' | NewsBusters.org

    Morons.

    Nothing like objective reporting. This Obama shill really goes after Dick Armey and thinks he has a gotcha moment. When in fact he comes across looking like a total stooge. :lol:

    Such an inane and lame talking point that even a cave man could debunk it.

    I suppose if you wanted to reach a bit, you could say that my health does impact you, if you're a tax payer that is. If i don't have insurance, blow my money on junk food and video games then get a heart attack, chances are that you will end up footing the bill, or part of it. So, for the good of everyone, everyone must have some type of insurance. I don't agree with it in principle but it's basically trying to mandate personal responsibility.

    A big issue i have with it is the precedent it sets. The idea behind a mandate is that health insurance is a good thing to have, and i agree with that. But if you do that, where does it stop? It's also good to drink only water and juice and not eat junk food. Establish the precedent of allowing the government to mandate that we buy certain things privately and it opens the door to things like mandating your diet though requiring you to buy fruit juice, vegetables, etc. I just don't see why the government should be allowed to force me into what they think is good for me.

    Since you aern't mandated to own a car, that line of argument is lame.
