The car Insurance analogy is a correct one
Advertisements [?]
I keep hearing from the naysayers that "you don't HAVE to drive a car" in response to the car insurance mandate analogy -- but you know what? In the REAL world, most of us DO have to drive. Especially here in California.

To me what you're spouting when you say such things is akin to a Republican talking point. "You don't need welfare, just get a job" or "Just eat healthy and don't get sick."

The truth is, cars are a necessity for most people. Maybe if you live in New York you can get by on public transportation, but not in most places in this country. And if you NEED to drive a car, you are required to get insurance or pay a hefty fine.

The analogy is correct.
