A 12 Year Old Figures Out the Importance of the Health Insurance Mandate

See a video where I talk to my twelve year old son about health insurance, unrehearsed, and try to see whether he will be able to figure out the importance of the health insurance mandate. I think you will agree that this is an idea even a sixth grader can understand. Which is sad, because most people hold a strong opinion about this topic without grasping even its most basic strengths and weaknesses.

Now if the Obama team will work on helping American adults understand the benefits of getting everyone to get insurance!

    So – let’s say you eat organic food, exercise regularly, do your yoga, etc.. I don’t exercise, drink coke all day long, drink alcohol like a fish, and smoke two packs a day. I get diabetes, lung cancer and liver cancer. Should we both still pay $7,000 per year?

    Great Website. Glad to see all is well!

      To Jim,
      Where do kids with birth defects fit in your simple formula, or the things that can go wrong that have nothing to do with lifestyle choice. And where are you getting decent insurance for a family of four for 7 grand.
