Using governmental power to compel a private citizen attempting to partake in a private service to purchase and/or undertake an medically unnecessary secondary private service is far outside the powers of what the Government should be allowed to do.
"Radical", "terrible"...irrelevant, it's massively big government interjecting itself into the private citizen's lives.
This would be no more in line with what the Government should be doing than forcing people to have to pay for and/or attend a course that shows what victems of gun violence look like prior to purchasing a firearm.
