I can see all the downsides of the current health care reform plan, at least the one coming from the Senate Finance Committee. It's too bad people inside the Beltway can't seem to get behind Senator Wyden's plan. But in answer to the day's question, in general, I'd rather be "forced" to pay for my own family's health insurance than to be paying for the families of the uninsured, which is what happens now. In other words, I'd rather pay for their insurance directly through increased taxes and subsidies than indirectly through increased insurance premiums (which also give more profit to the insurance companies).
