Why does everyone in the United States have to get health care by 2014?

Report as

When someone without health coverage get urgent medical care. It can be quite expensive, and sometimes they don't pay the bill. So, everyone else ends up paying for it. The law requires all people who can afford it to take responsibility for their own health insurance by getting coverage or paying a penalty.

Actually because we are number 1 in health care costs and 38 in actual health care. We rank just above Cuba.
Every other industrialized nation has national health care and they all spend less and get better results than we do

How would that lower our debt at all?

Because it's cheaper to pay for a mammogram than to pay for late stage cancer care. People without insurance tend to not use preventive care and then go to the ER when it gets too far. Then, something that could have been fixed easily and cheaply takes $$$$$$

Same reason why people have car insurance. It's irresponsible to not have health insurance.

Because unlike car insurance, you can't choose when you're going to need a doc/hospital. All you can know is that you will need them

You can choose if you will drive and since I believe inattention is a big part of accidents, then yes, you choose to be in an accident
