Why force Amer­i­cans to buy cov­er­age they just don’t want?

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the July 17 ed­i­to­rial (“This is a dis­as­ter,” p. 24), Amer­i­cans do not want to be forced to pay for med­i­cal cov­er­age they don’t want/need. Many peo­ple are very will­ing to live their lives and have only cat­a­strophic health in­sur­ance in case of . . . a catas­tro­phe. If the gov­ern­ment could be trusted to use our tax dol­lars wisely, then maybe they could use tax dol­lars to help those who want care but don’t have the funds. Oh wait, could they uti­lize a gov­ern­ment-run health­care sys­tem like the VA?
