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…

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.

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.

Do you know that many auto insurance companies base your rate on your Credit Score>? Should this be legal>?
First off, I have been a claims adjuster for 20+ years. Using a credit report to help determine rates is pure BS. As another poster stated many people with good credit suck at driving.
