How will Obama's voluntary health insurance plan force anyone to do anything?
I hear people talk about how the gvernment health insurance plan will "force" them to only see certain doctors, which is impossible bacause you first have to voluntarially sign up for the plan. Even then, just like EVERY other country with government health care, you can always opt out in favor of private health care. So how is it forcing anyone to change their health care?

If private is less expensive, then what's ultimately the benefit of... More

It will only force them to get what is offered. The Government will decide what you need and when you need it. They can withold any service they deem unnecessary. They can decide what services you get and where you get them. Don't be fooled by the idea of National health care, it comes with a cost, you may not wish to... More

Judging by your picture, you should go get some of that healthcare for yourself. Maybe you could go wait in line in England.
