Don't say no one warned you when it happens. Don't come back here and post something like "I CANNOT BELIEVE my government is doing this!!!" - because here you stand, making fun of someone who is trying to warn you that if the government tells you what you will and will not have to buy, simply for being ALIVE, there is a good chance they can require you to do anything that they want.


Okay, I am going to go about this from a different angle, since the fact that this is a complete and utter fear-mongering hypothetical, that you all are buying.

Explain something to me: How can anyone force anyone to BUY anything?



4 words:

Mandatory health care insurance

The key word is "mandatory". Whether you happen to agree with our government as to whether it is a good idea or not isn't the issue here. If I am 25 years old and CHOOSE NOT to buy health care insurance because I see a doctor maybe once every 3 or 4 years, then I should NOT be forced to buy insurance that I don't want and don't need.

If I suffer an accident and am put back together for it in the ER the hospital will bill me. If I cannot pay, I will set up a pay arrangement with the hospital.

1)Paid for in taxes, not out of pocket.

2)Material possessions and health care are completely different.

A person cannot be forced to buy a material possession. It is impossible in every sense of the word.

Good lord

You're already paying for people who haven't paid their emergency bill in your taxes. With that in mind, why do you care that the same thing is now happening but this time you get help out of it too. Your 25 so guess what, your automatically back on your parents insurance. Congrats.

Yes it is a hypothetical. My question is also a hypothetical. Universal health-care at one time was also a hypothetical.


You just DO Not GET It, do you? Health Care may have been Hypothetical because it was for and benefitting the People!!! It wasn't brought about to benefit a Company. It wasn't brought in to Benefit the Insurance Companies. It was Looked at to benefit the
P E O P L E
How can forcing people to Buy a GM Product or any other companies Product going to Benefit the Population?

Crikey, Some people just can't see the wood from the trees..


HOOOOOLLLLDDDD ONNNN!!!!!

What your saying is the ends justify the means?

It's OKAY for the government to force me to buy something as long as it is BENEFICIAL TO THE PEOPLE???

Think VERY hard on that before you answer.

The ignorance here is in thinking this could actually happen.

So yes, let's deny ignorance.

OMG!!! And just WHO pays those taxes in the first place!? I DO!

It doesn't matter if I'm 25 or 35! If I decide NOT to buy health insurnace THAT IS MY decision and no one else's! I should not be taxed to buy MYSELF health insurance that I DON'T WANT!

maybe not but if the annointed one and his cronies can make you buy inurance then what is to stop them from making you buy what they want you to buy... hypothetical , Yes...and it might be, but what is to stop them... especially if they can fine and lock you up for not having insurance and what is to stop them from doing the same thing on products that support his ass...



See, and right here you give yourself and those that are actually backing this garbage away.

"the annointed one" "his ass"....

This isnt about the article. This is about obama bashing.

Pathetic.



yep.... but you must like all he is doing so I say it like it is... we (for now) still have some constitutional rights...till he gets done...

that's the way it is mister... he is what he is.

no # man... of course it is hypothetical... it was meant to be... and your problem is you do not like anyone speaking out against your obama... so you might ought to just accept the fact that not every one is getting the tingle up the leg over this guy...

About the response I expected. I am not an obama supporter.

However, to look at this hypothetical situation and use it as a means to claim that obama is taking away our constitutional rights only goes further to show that it is about your hatred for him, and not anything of actual substance.

Hate on!

Because there's a danger in just letting things like this sit. All the lies and myths about things like 'death panels' lost us the public option which would've been wonderful. Half truths and downright deceptiveness have to be called out and fixed for that very matter, before it gets on Fox news and scares everyone.

They will never "mandate" everyone buying a new car. What they could do, however, is be a lot more subtle.

Say, for instance, TPTB decide to save us all from ourselves again, which they seem readily willing to do more and more. They merely pass a law that all vehicles must meet certain air standards, as set by the EPA. Cars over a certain age will not be allowed to be sold to anyone except recycling centers.

In a few years anyone wanting a car will have to buy a new or nearly new vehicle if they don't want to walk.

We must do it for the childrens


If it benefitted the Population, Why not? It's your choice to Drive a Car. If you want to Drive a Car that's Old and emits Pollution that I have to Breathe, well?

It's easily fixed for you. Don't buy a Car. You need not worry about that probelm ever again..

To be on point, Japan already has that System. If you own a Car that's a few years old, it no longer complies with the Emission Law.. Japan makes you pay more in registration fees. That's the way Japan get's around it. Why do you think there are so many Japanes Grey Imports Coming in to other Countries? It opened up an entirely new Economy. A lot of Japans Second Hand cars go to other countries where the Emissions Law isn't so Strict.

Do you mean Medicaid? Again, if I myself had an accident and was unable to pay for doctor care then I could also apply for Medicaid benefits to help me with the cost. That's assuming I NEEDED Medicaid.

What we're talking about here is a whopping big tax increase, forcing me to have something that I may not want.

Health INSURANCE is a PRODUCT, like any other product on the market.

If My government is so concerned that 30+ million people aren't getting medical attention, then why are they forcing them to buy a PRODUCT instead of buying their medical care for them at a reduced rate straight from the doctors?

It would benefit the American people by keeping GM solvent and not begging for another bailout. It would also help GM pay back its debt to the government. Plus it would keep people employed.

Playing right out of the textbook i see.

tell you what, when you actually have something to contribute, and not you asinine little comments, come on back.

otherwise, go hang out with your KKK brothers and spread your hate that way. You'll get further.



KKK brothers..... not to likely mister... that is the best line of false accusation I have seen in a good while....
