This is a great point brought up by someone on a message board where I post. There are many that are complaining about the fines for individuals or businesses not having or offering insurance. Think of it this way:
We’re all required to have car insurance to drive our cars. There are big fines if we don’t. Businesses are required to have workers comp insurance for employees or face fines. The health insurance requirements are new to us, but the concept should not be foreign.
Fifty years from now, heck even 10 years from now we’ll recognize this as a societal norm. You don’t hear individuals or companies complaining about the fact that we need to have certain insurance. This will soon feel just like that.
