Involuntary servitude? Do you know what that means? It means forcing someone to WORK against their will. How is requiring each person to buy health care forcing them to labor against their will?

But if we cannot have single payer than everyone must have health insurance.
Because by not having it you are raising the cost of health care to unsustainable levels. When you cannot pay the costs are pushed to the people who can.
Now since we all have to get insurance three things need to happen.
1) Make it incredibly affordable.
2) Make sure our rights as consumers are protected and the insurance companies are heavily regulated.
3) The ability to form and pay into our own citizen run health care insurance company that is accountable to the people.
...that and the idea that this is unconstitutional is preposterous.
