22. No you don't you CHOOSE to drive (as do I).
1) you could move to another city with good public transit
2) you could lobby local govt to expand public transit
3) you could choose employement/residence locations that make alternatives more realistic
4) you could carpool, telecommute, take a cab, etc.

Would any of that be "easy"? No. Would it be utterly impossible? No.

You have choices. They may not be easy choices. They may be too much work for you to consider but they are choices.

Here even if you wanted to self-insure you can't. You are forced to hand money over to insurance companies (80% of people will never get health-care equal to the cost of their health insurance). You have absolutely no choice other than to pay a TAX for non-compliance.
