John Edwards reveals what universal health care means to him: Forced doctor visits.
“It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care,” he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. “If you are going to be in the system, you can’t choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.”
What’s the penalty for choosing to ignore your doctor’s advice after a mandatory visit? Do you get kicked out of the program? Would parents who choose not to give their children, say, Ritalin that’s been prescribed during a mandatory visit find themselves charged with child abuse?
