Why do Liberals always bring up the Auto insurance analogy to defend the Health Care bill?

I was reading through the comments on the given article and I thought, why use the auto insurance analogy? Driving is a privilege, you don'-t need auto insurance if you don'-t own a car.http://www.latimes.com/health/la-na-obam…

That is actually a pretty narrow distinction in modern society. Sure, some people get around using bicycles and public transportation, but for most people, a car is essentially a necessity.

Because liberals are a bunch of morons. They don't think things through.I've also seen them try to compare it to Medicare. LOL! Medicare is a TAX! The government can tax you anytime it wants. Obamacare on the other hand is a requirement that everyone buy a commercial product.For some reason, liberals don't understand the difference.

They just can't seem to grasp that one doesn't necessarily have to drive, and if a car isn't operated on a public street no insurance is necessary. Obamacare is mandatory for anyone who intends to breathe. I'm sorry but I just can't give that up.

They have nothing else but little do they realize that driving is a privilege not a right.

Lol on that analogy.Most don't realize auto insurance requirement is up to each state and not a constitutional amendment unlike Obamacare with it's regulations and penalties for not having it or can't afford it.

When attempting to teach a child, one must use simple concepts that the simple mind of the child can grasp and understand.

Because Conservatives keep forgetting that the mandate was THEIR idea.Source(s):Good old Turtle man Mitch McConnel
