What if Obamacare Really was Like Auto Insurance?

During a March 8th interview on C-Span Rep. Jackie Speier (D- Calif.) was discussing the upcoming Supreme Court date focused on Obamacare.

When asked what would happen if part, or all of the healthcare law was overturned she said, “ I don’t think that it’s going to be overturned. We have a long history of requiring proof of auto insurance at the time of registration of a vehicle, mandatory responsibility to carry auto insurance. So this individual mandate for health insurance, I think, will be held constitutional.”

Is it me? Or is the ongoing argument that the individual mandate in Obamacare is somehow the same as some states requiring proof of insurance when registering an automobile just absurd?

Can you imagine if buying car insurance was actually similar to what’s in Obamacare? It would be like absurdist theater.

For those who cannot imagine, we imagined it for you. So there’s no need to visualize, just click ‘play’ and enjoy.
