No one is more in favor of universal health care than I am but this is not universal and it's not really health care. It is a mandate to buy insurance (which may or may not provide decent coverage) from for-profit corporations.
Here's part of a comment I found on Alternet:
I have a problem with it too.
Well, folks, this is it. Forcing every citizen to patronize these corporations is fascism – and it is a pernicious precedent nobody seems to have considered long term – like the ”corporations are people too” precedent. Maybe we should pay a monthly tithe to WalMart next.
To make it clear, National Health, single payer and the public option are all pure socialism; I don’t have the slightest problem with that. This plan is fascist. That, I have a problem with.
Look, if we really had to do this incrementally, what would be wrong with slowly lowering the age of eligibility for Medicare until everybody was covered?
