To mandate health insurance premiums is to privatize tax collection & spending

Compulsory insurance premiums represent the privatization of taxes. Talk about taxation without representation. How would a personal expense mandated by the government be any different than a tax? The burden is contributed toward the common good, but administrated privately. While oversight might fall to civil service regulators, nowhere is an elected official part of the loop. They’re privatizing the public sector: the military, the utilities, the media, the schools, the Postal Service, and of course they’re after Social Security. Taxpayers pay for the social safety net. Making them pay health insurance premiums is to privatize their taxes.
