5. I don't

THIS is why I despise the insurance mandate in Obama's wealth insurance reform....

It's a desperate last gasp to save a corrupt and vile industry. I really really really hope the supreme court throws it out with extreme prejudice! There is no justification for propping up these immoral corporate blood sucking shitheels.

...see it that way. I think people have overstated the connection between the mandate and the insurance companies. Given that most people already have insurance via their employer, most of the newly insured will be among those who want coverage, but have been denied and those who do not have coverage through an employer. In fact, as the OP states: "It won’t be long before most of us get coverage through either a state or federal government-run plan or a local nonprofit company."
