Mandating Health Coverage: Do you think all Americans should be required to have insurance?
Sunday, August 16, 2009
As part of health reform, Congress and the Administration want to mandate that all Americans be required to purchase coverage. There will be a tax or fine for those that go without. Additionally, Congress has also included an employer mandate, requiring businesses above a certain size (above $750,000 in payroll or more than 50 employees) to provide group coverage to their workers and pay for at minimum 50% of the cost of that coverage.
What are your thoughts on both the individual mandate and the employer mandate?
