30. Connection to Health Insurance?
I found myself wondering whether one of the reasons the Senate agreed on a Health Insurance bill that lacks any public option was primarily to create a legal precedent that State compulsion can be used to directly benefit private entities. If individual citizens must pay for private health insurance, or be fined, in similar fashion is there a day in the future when individual parents must also pay (what are now charter that become) for-profit schools to educate their children?
