Mr. President, when I came to WA state, auto insurance was cheap. Being from NC, it was natural to have auto ins so sure I got it on my vehicle. A few years later laws were introduced to make it mandatory. I thought it was already mandatory. 6 months after the law went into effect my premiums almost doubled. No accidents, no tickets, just the law saying that I had to have ins and I couldn’t do anything about the rates. Is your mandatory health care plan going to work out like this? Mandatory health care with no public option is playing right into the ins co hand.
