I don't see how you're offering anyone any real freedom.<quoted text>
What's the difference between a government mandate and and a private mandate?
Degrees of freedom, Julia.
The net effect of what you label 'freedom' is that those who do pay (insurance or medical bills) will continue to supplement those who do not or can not pay.
I'm not 'free' from paying higher premiums charged by my insurance company due to extra costs passed on by providers - costs attributable to losses from those who do not or can not pay yet still receive treatment.
