    Name another service or product that the federal government requires every man, woman, and child in the country to buy from a private company ...
    Other than food, shelter, clothing and water, everyone will need medical care at some time in their lives. But we don't all need auto insurance because not everyone drives an automobile. And even if they did drive and have valid driver's license, not everyone who does drive are the actual owner (or co-owner) of the vehicle they operate. Therefore, we agree in this regard: It is the States who mandate the requirement that each of its residents who own a motorized vehicle must insure that vehicle in case of accidental damage to property or injury to one's person, passengers or lose of life due to operating said motor vehicle.

    I've stated before that I believe the individual health insurance mandate should also be at the State level, but I also understand the need for all Americans to have health insurance. Therefore, other than the mandate, do you know of any other way to ensure all Americans are, in fact, insured?

    Show me a hospital closing. I'll wait.

    I got an idea: pass a bill mandating that people get out, get a job and buy their own health insurance.

    I'll still be waiting............
    Who will never requrie health care? Only those who will need health care are required to purchase health care. Exactly the same.

    No sidestep. Until you see the point, there is no question there to answer. health care is something that every single person needs. No one choses not to receive health care at some level. So, you miss the point with this line of argumentation.

    Perefence? Never suggested a preference. I simply used it to give an overview. I was only suprised that the something more comparitive wasn't used. The issue isn't that there are not wait times in canada, but that both countries have issue swith wait times.

    You do know there are people who have jobs but not health care?
