I agree with most of your points.
One thing that needs to be considered if we extend medical coverage to more Americans is the necessity for more doctors. Many doctors, especially surgeons and ER docs, are extremely overworked as is. That plus the financial barriers to becoming a doctor make the profession far from lucrative.
You're are not basing your argument off the Constitution. You are warping the Constitution to fit your stance.
The commerce clause clearly states that Congress has the power to regulate interstate commerce. Forcing people to buy health insurance is not regulation of commerce, it's coercion of commerce. The constitution includes no provision giving Congress the power to dictate how people spend THEIR money.
I would refute more of your argument, but most of it is irrelevant.
threads for later... Excited to see intelligent, non-aggressive, non-inflammatory discussion of health care in NSG.
see you all soon.
