Should the uninsured be required to purchase health insurance? President Obama managed to pass his healthcare reform bill, which, by 2014, will require the uninsured to purchase insurance (with the help of subsidies available to those in lower income brackets) or be fined. The Supreme Court just upheld this bill, after vehement challenges from Republican opposition who charged that the government is over-stepping its bounds by requiring people to buy insurance. Currently, people without insurance frequently use emergency rooms for all kinds of care, both urgent and mundane. These cases put a great strain on the system, especially when many of the patients cannot pay for their care at all. Should the uninsured be required to purchase insurance?
