The mandate that all must have insurance and the stipulation that those who cannot afford it will receive tax money to help them buy it anyhow guarantees that all Americans will depend on the government for their insurance. Although the law as written does not carry the name “socialized medicine,” the law provides the mechanism for a full-blown implementation of “socialized medicine” in the U.S.
This is the forerunner for a full conversion of the American capitalistic society to a full-blown socialist society. America grew to a great nation of self-reliant people. America will perish as a nation of government-reliant people.
