My question involves civil rights in the State of: U.S. in general.
What would prohibit a suit against the government itself for forcing Healthcare costs on private citizens?
We could look at automobile insurance, for example, and say "Well, the government enforces insurance for that, doesn't it?" The problem with that, is we would also have to have the government forcing people...to drive. To make the parallel equal. Right?
I had a policy that I was paying for out of my own pocket, and when the new law went into effect my insurance was just under doubling my premium for a lesser policy, which I hate to admit angered me based on principle. I am not interested in becoming reliant on the government for a healthcare policy, but I cannot for the life of me understand how the government can force me to buy a policy, or penalize me if I don't.
I am sure this may have been brought up before, but being new here, I think it better to get responses from people who have been through that discussion and perhaps can answer it more directly based on those conversations.
