I stand with the Cato institute on this one. (link) I don’t support the idea of either providing universal health care coverage or forcing people to cover themselves. If I am to be free, then I am to be free to not buy health care insurance, not to see a doctor when I am sick, and not to go to the emergency room if I have a medical emergency. I have the freedom to take care of my body or to refuse treatment.
The idea that someone else can force me to buy insurance or to see a doctor is the exact opposite of freedom and liberty.
