  1. I don't think the car insurance mandate is the same as the health insurance mandate. First of all, it is not required that one owns a car, although most people do, as opposed to health insurance, out of which no one will be able to opt.
    On federal mandates vs state mandates, we have seen that a large federal bureaucracy is much worse at managing issues than the state governments and the federal mandate is unconstitutional. As Rich said the federal government is restricted from doing anything not included in the constitution. The state governments do not have this restriction, yay 10th amendment.
    Go hyperboleNOT!

  2. you make a very good point about the choice one makes prior to the mandate to purchase insurance. if the difference between federal mandates vs. state mandates was solely based on efficiency it would be a much more persuasive argument.

    still, a mandate to perform an action infringes on a "right" of some sort. but all-in-all, i would say your counter point is well taken.
