Default Re: Getting Specific (Dayo Olopade & Ann Althouse)

Is it possible that the right to privacy decisions of the last several decades will be used to reject health insurance mandates? If the government does not have sufficiently important reasons to interfer with private abortion decisions, do they have sufficiently important reasons to oblige purchases of services against the will of the individual? With auto insurance it seem clear that the act of driving clearly provides for the potential of harming others, but I don't know of anyone who died from someone else's swine flu. I do support public health expenditures to provide a degree of protection against epidemic disease, but health insurance is primarily a funding mechanism, not a health system per se. I think liberty concerns should trump the idea that a mandate will drive a more manageable system.
