Honma3738 posted a topic in Health Insurance For All AmericansPresident Trump wants health insurers to offer plans with little to no benefits and can reject customers if they have pre-existing conditions. These are called short-term plans. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/02/20/587244292/trump-administration-wants-to-let-insurers-offer-plans-with-fewer-benefits
"Allow the direct purchase of subsidized health insurance plans through the health insurers own websites." Source cited: HealthCare.gov Plan B Fix This simple action would open the flood gates to the new health insurance plans that are currently being blocked because of the HealthCare.gov website problems.
So there are a couple of things I need progressives to explain to me. 1. If the point of the affordable care act is to insure those that don't have insurance why in the shit do I have to participate in it? 2. If I should choose not to participate why is it ok to fine me for choosing not to use a "Service". 3. If I should fail to pay the fine that is levied against me for choosing not to use a service I didn't want in the first place what should my punishment be? Prison? Theft of my money through bank account seizure? Killed? 4. How is forcing somebody to buy a service through threat of violence or theft of funds constitute freedom? 5. Explain to me how forcing poor people to pay a fine if they do not buy insurance is helping them get insurance? 6. Why in the world do progressives want to expand the power of the federal government to fine an individual for not participating in a service they don't want? Surely even you can see that while right now you are getting what you want that is a good thing but down the road it could become problematic for you. Isn't forcing somebody to comply with your will even when you have the majority on your side something you see as immoral?
