    It may be mandatory, tho I see no reason he couldn't get private insurance and pay a penalty if required. That would be more consistent with his politics until now.
    No, this is not April Fools, this is a real headline.

    One option is no insurance. And I could say that no insurance would be the best option for him and his family. And then he'd just pay the fine. But then if something catastrophic happened I could be like the GOP candidates at a debate in 2012 who in response to a question at the debate on what to do with people with no insurance when a person in the audience screamed out 'LET HIM DIE' and not one of the Republican candidates in that debate seemed shocked nor did any correct the the person who said that.

    But I'm not that heartless.
    Can someone besides a liberal or a socialist explain to me why people think breaking the law is an acceptable choice?

    Hypocrisy on what? Private healthcare is essentially the only option for the most part, and what does donating to the treasury have to do with anything? I'm in favor of taxes that scale based on wealth, I don't see the connection with donating to the treasury.

    You think about it for a while.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    So do people have a right to their own labor? Yes or no? If so, how can healthcare be a right?

    What do you mean by "right to their own labor" I think that healthcare should be a human right based on having compassion for others, that is all.

    If you want to pay more go ahead and pay more by donating to the treasury.
