Hillary Clinton's wants to require health insuranc

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has proposed a universal health care system that requires everyone to buy health insurance. Employers that don't provide health insurance for employees would be required to pay a tax. See Yahoo (Beth Fouhy, AP) or Lynn Sweet's blog.

Color me unimpressed. A large number of Americans nominally have health insurance and don't receive health care guaranteed by their contracts.

Insurance companies don't exist to keep health care costs down. They exist to be profitable.

The United States has the one health care system dominated by private insurers. And the United States has the most expensive health care system in the world.

[UPDATE: TRex (Fire Dog Lake) explains my main reservation about Clinton's proposal.]
