What If The Federal Government CAN Make You Buy A Product?

I’m glad the AGs of various states are challenging the federal mandate that compels us to purchase health care coverage from the (“evil”) insurance companies. My worry is that they will lose. And once that precedent is set, what else could we be forced to purchase by law?

Will we be required to have bank accounts, purchased from evil banks? After all, if you have money, you must be participating in commerce, so that can be regulated.

What about funeral insurance? We’re all going to die (I’m working on this one) and there’s a cost associated with that, for now. Or maybe someone will come to the realization that since all of us will need our remains disposed of at some point, this service is a right. And since it’s a right, no one will be allowed to make money on it, making it “free”.

Proof by iteration is a concept that should be taught at around age 10.

  • We all require food.  I’m sure there’s a progressive somewhere that wants my forced participation in a state-run food-exchange.  (They’ll regulate “evil” Super Walmart if they can’t get a “Publix” option to pass – hehe)

    • @Neville But we’ve had that for years haven’t we? Who do you think pays for corn subsidies and food stamps?

  • @Scott I want my fair share! (Can I swap a corn subsidy for a chocolate subsidy?)
