Carpe Diem points out the cost of insurance for a young person in Michigan.
It points out what’s been clear to thinking people all along: Passing health care reform was always about using force to make one group of people buy something for another group of people.
If you choose between health insurance and a cell phone (much less an iPhone), that’s your doing. Not mine. I should not have to subsidize your cell phone, or your vacation… which is what these folks really want.
But no one would ever pass a law making me pay for cell phones or vacations. Health care, on the other hand, well not paying for that is just mean.
