Refusing to Buy Mandatory Health Insurance

(NaturalNews) “Even if Obama’s health care reform bill becomes law, mandating that all Americans buy health insurance policies for a failed system of “sick care”, I will refuse to comply. I’ve read the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights, and nowhere in that document do I find that the federal government has the power to force consumers to purchase for-profit insurance products from private companies.”

Personally speaking, I totally agree with Mike Adams on this one. Forcing people to buy health insurance from privately owned companies is not only unconstitutional, it’s inherently wrong. We should not be forced to pay for insurance coverage that sucks canal water and only serves to increase bottom line profits for the insurance companies. I’m already paying way more than I can afford for the little coverage (with a 5,000.00 deductible) that I now have…. and may have to drop.

I will not be forced into buying some status quo health insurance policy, where premiums and deductibles increase on a whim (mine have gone up 30% TWICE in one year), coverage is low, and the health insurance companies get to dictate what will or will not be covered. I fail to understand how those who are crying about “government controlled health care” are dead silent about the fact that the health insurance companies are the ones who decide what sort of health care you’re going to get, or not get… or what meds you can or cannot have, and refuse to cover alternative therapies. The insurance companies are the ones coming between you and your doctor. Why isn’t that as alarming to the fringe of the fringe as the public option seems to be?

Props to Mike Adams! I hope everyone joins in and tells the gov’t what they can do with that mandate!
