OpEd: Will Supreme Court Outlaw mandatory car insurance?
In areas of public interest, where the theory of large numbers requires a large number of participants, states have routinely held that citizens must obtain car insurance in order to validly drive an automobile. If one would conclude from the Supreme Courts arguments today that a nation cannot insist in the matter of public health and safety of insisting on health insurance being obtained either through a pool, or individually, then one wonders whether mandatory auto insurance will be next... or taxes themselves... Why should I be required to pay taxes...or eat brocolli....or wear a helmet....Maybe the Supreme Court can set a standard so broad that it will make collecting taxes impossible and thus reduce the size of government and create anarchy to the complete delight of the fundamentalist brethern....Alleluia.
