On the alleged tyranny of requiring people to buy health insurance

I wish opponents of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. “Obamacare”) would stop pretending that they think the individual mandate is some unique affront to freedom when it’s obvious they would oppose any scheme of universal coverage, no matter what mechanism it used. Does anyone think they’d be okay with a single-payer system where the government just buys health insurance for everybody?

  1. And why can state government require you to have auto insurance but the federal government can’t require you to have health insurance? Not to mention being forced to send your children to school. Being forced to register births and deaths. Being forced to follow and maintain building codes. I’m thinking it has something to do with maintaining civilization.
