41. Thanks for the input
The part where families "will be expected to enroll in another plan or be assigned one" is a bit troubling to me when it comes to having to be forced to go through a healthcare insurance package that they are "assigned to".

If anyone has ever been through the situation of even simply choosing a healthcare insurance package, it can be daunting as well as seem like the small print of pre-existing conditions factored out causing extraordinarly costly coverage with little guarantee of quality or access.

If a family where several sick individuals can't get healthcare insurance and are additionally fined for not being able to get coverage, who wins? Are they crossed off as "covered" because they will continue to be "assigned" to another loop of healthcare insurance coverage?

Mandating makes no sense and it certainly doesn't make healthcare more affordable. It allows healthcare insurance companies to make a killing.
