    Are you living without health insurance?

    I'm surprised at the SCOTUS ruling on health care.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     rosehips says she doesn't like the mandate in the health insurance law because she doesn't understand how people can be forced to pay for insurance when they don't have any money. She says she would prefer a single payer system.
    - davidw, CNN iReport producer

    I appreciate the intention of ObamaCare but I never liked the mandate. How can we force people to buy something they don't have money to pay for?

    Single payer health insurance is a better way to go. It eliminates profit from the equation. I don't like insurance companies making billions off of our health care system.

    I'm lucky that my state has a good subsidized program although it is constantly being threaten with cuts. I am currently paying $30/mo for my college enrolled son and me. My 24 year old son is uninsured. He is about to go on a cross country trip. I guess he's an outlaw since he is uninsured. Will they make him show his medical card if he is detained by police for something? I wonder.

    I am surprised at this ruling. I really didn't think that the court would allow the mandate. But I guess some see the serious implications if it was overruled. They avoided a train wreck.

    Now lets redesign the train.

    Thanks for reading!
