Obama Healthcare Trouble

December 24, 2007

Obama has a big problem in his healthcare agenda.  No mandates.  This is a good statement why Mandates are essential to a sustainable program and one reason why I will not be supporting Obama when I vote in the Primary.

In short, mandates are needed because otherwise “healthy” people would opt-out until they are ill and then suddenly have a change of heart.  This would be fine if when they opted out they signed aways saying that no government program will every pay for any treatment for conditions that arise while I am not part of this program.  The problem is that bleeding hearts will choose to allow these game players into the system anyway.  Who is going to let a person with cancer just die.  It is better to require a mandate up front and not have all these bleeding heart stories come out.
