That is exactly what obamacare is about too. Force everyone to buy insurance - the money goes out of their pockets into the pockets of the insurance companies. If you listen to the arguments before the Supreme Court, it is spelled out: they want young, healthy people who need little health care to pay premiums - supposedly so the insurance companies will lower the cost of coverage to those with pre-existing conditions. Would it not be less expensive for the taxpayers to simply provide those people with a plan like the one for Medicare recipients who can't afford the Medicare premium to have the premium paid for them through Medicaid - instead of the expense of creating yet another federal bureaucracy ?
