It is true, you just don't understand what I said.

This is where you make it clear that you didn't understand. I'm talking about people who don't carry any actual insurance at all, not people like you who pay for a catastrophic policy. People who don't carry any insurance at all, will still get barebones emergency and catastrophic care despite not having insurance to cover it. Those people are effectively getting a free catastrophic policy and you and everyone else who buys insurance are paying for it.

Well, you do get designated a NeoCon for a reason, pat. Clearly this is a case. People with just catastrophic insurance are already in the system by their own free choice. They do not need to be brought in. Futhermore, you're not "bringing" anyone... you are coercing them. And no, it's not like the local fire department because it's national legislation from the central govt making it fascism.
The reason you call me a neocon is that you don't understand what neocon means any more than you understood what my post was about.
