I kind of agree with both views. If government is going to make you have insurance it needs to be government-funded or low cost enough that it can be paid for with minimum wage income. The government also requires car insurance without any affordability requirements. However, on the other hand, I do not think it should be mandatory. But the reasons for the objection to this requirement are suspect in my opinion because when government started forcing people to have car insurance I was like a lonely canoe out in the raging sea. I argued against the policy then while most others that I encountered argued that they didn't like their car insurance rates going up when someone is in an accident and doesn't have insurance.View Thread
