“We have insurance for our cars so why shouldn’t we have insurance for our bodies?... Then the government can help support everyone’s health.”

“Yes … I just think everybody should be entitled to get the same kind of coverage, the same kind of health care. I’d like to see it even across the board.”

“I do think the government should require everybody to have health insurance but that’s going to be a difficult program to implement.”

“Yes, I think that’s a good idea. They should also be required to allow it to be affordable health insurance, just as there are requirements for car insurance for the protection of others as well as yourself. There ought to be a minimum standard of coverage for everyone’s well-being.”
