Noe only mandate that they get health care but now private insurance wants to also penalized those that do not get health care in timely manner after the health care reform is passed.
But with the warning on the raising cost of health care by the private insurance on consumers things are not looking good for the voting on Tuesday.

You raise a good point. The absolutely terrible argument for mandatory insurance is that young people today refuse to buy insurance yet don't pay for emergency visits. And the reason its terrible is obvious: the vast majority of the new disasterous insurance program will not go to emergency rooms.
Its amazing how every time someone from the government forces something upon us to "solve a problem" it seems like the solution and problem are entirely unrelated to each other. Sorry but health insurance and the emergency room bills are only loosely related. I don't remember ever asking for emergency rooms to be forced to take me if I don't have the money. Not one time have I asked for that. This is just pure and brute force strong-armed bullying by authoritarian thugs.
