This is the dark side of universal health care:
Massachusetts has begun imposing stiff fines on residents who, for whatever reason, fail to purchase health insurance.
The program is the enforcement end of the state’s universal health-insurance plan – and the fees reach up to $912 a year.
This is the plan signed into law by Mitt Romney, and it’s what Hillary Clinton wants for us all.
A government formula determines whether you’re able to afford the plan, and if the state says you are, then you buy in or you pay a fine. Either way, it’s a mandatory wealth transfer program from taxpayers to insurance companies, health care corporations, and pharmaceutical companies.
Well, why not? One of the United States government’s biggest roles today is to serve as a collection agency for the four biggest sectors in the American economy: Health care, banking, defense, and oil.
