Nationally Mandated Health Insurance?

Quote from: Fox News
"I personally do not believe the Congress has the authority to enact an individual mandate requiring a person to purchase a product from a private seller," said Kent Masterson Brown, lead counsel with The Fund for Personal Liberty.

Can an American citizen be forced by the U.S. government to pay a penalty if he refuses to participate in health care insurance? This sounds like a bailout of insurance companies.
Quote from: Fox News
Even though Obama argues that the mandate is similar to laws requiring drivers to obtain auto insurance, opponents cite several key differences. First, the auto insurance mandate is avoidable, since anyone who doesn't want to pay doesn't have to drive. Second, auto insurance is mandated in large part so that drivers carry liability insurance to cover damages to other people and cars -- not themselves. Third, auto insurance regulation occurs at the state level.
I personally do not want to participate in forced health insurance. Does the constitution authorize the government to penalize citizens who choose not to participate in health care insurance? An associate said the penalty fee will "only" :rolleyes: be $300 per year for all citizens who refuse to give the insurance companies money -- just enough to help keep insurance companies financially afloat. The penalty fee will invariably rise. :eek:

God bless the Fox News network! :cheer:

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
