2. Forcing people to buy insurance was never a good idea.

A single-payer plan would have avoided this problem. The government certainly can force people to pay taxes. Then, under a single-payer system, the government can make the services and needed medications available to everyone. It is then up to the choice of the individual whether she or he wishes to take advantage of the services offered. Problem solved.

Ultimately the Archbishop is right. “Never before,” Archbishop Dolan said, setting the tone, “has the federal government forced individuals and organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product." That's true, and it's offensive to the Constitution.
