The Affordable Care Act, aka ACA, aka Obamacare has just hit its climactic point: the individual mandate. It requires everyone to buy health insurance or pay a fine. Most other aspects of the law such as children being able to stay on their parents’ insurance until the age of 26 and having preventive services covered at no cost are greeted with muted indifference. But when it comes to the individual mandate, passions run high. Bloods boil,deities are invoked and mothers are called unkind names. The common portrayal of a citizen disgruntled about the ACA is someone who feels that it infringes on personal freedoms. But some people dislike the ACA because they feel it doesn’t go far enough. They are proponents of a single payer system.
