I am concerned that the democrats are making a big mistake.
That is called "individual mandates".
Requiring everyone to carry health insurance. This is like auto insurance, they tell us.

Then there's the idea of making a giant database of Health histories. A database, one would assume, the government would have access to.
As a user of "alternative" health services and as one who rejects the concept of mandatory vaccination, I am concerned that I could be punished for personal health care choices.
Single Payer could avoid these problems. That is why I still strongly support "single payer" coverage. Individual mandates, it appears to me, may even be unconstitutional.
