    Liberals are good at trying to legislation personal responsibility issues but have never been successful.

    Now address the question, why is it the Government's responsibilty to tell rich people they have to buy insurance?
    Health insurance also protects us from someone else. We pay for the irresponsible, so when they have insurance, we are protected from them.

    As for consequences, you're being too hyperbolic.

    No, this bill does nothing to change personal behavior and personal responsibility. Bill those who use the ER's instead of the taxpayer. If foreign bill the State Dept.

    Like with everything else, a liberal will tear down the house to remodel the bathroom. Now answer the question, why should rich people be forced to buy insurance?

    Actually, that happens in my neighborhood, because it makes more economic sense sometimes.

    Incorrect. Right now we are paying for those who use the er. Period. Until you recognize this, you have it all wrong.

    Only if the ER doesn't bill the insurance company of the insured. There is nothing in this bill that prevents the insured from going to the ER's.

    Still won't answer the question because you know the answer. Why should the govt. demand that people who can fund their own insurance be forced to buy insurance that does nothing to lower the cost of healthcare?

    You are losing this argument badly but then again I am sure down deep you realize that.

    The insured can pay. And I have answered. It does lower cost because they will be covered and can get care paid for.
