Could Health Insurance Become Mandatory?

It has been a matter of debate for a long time now over whether health insurance should be mandatory. While car, home, and other such property insurance is required by law, why isn’t coverage for our health regarded the same way? Some feel that such a mandate is in the works, slated to be enacted as soon as the end of this year, others say that it will never come to pass. Lawmakers argue that if the roughly 46 million who are currently uninsured were added to the million who are insured, it would bring medical and health insurance premium costs down for everyone. This is the ideal of course, but how will it be enforced? People often get away with owning a car without car insurance, how will a mandate on health insurance be enforced?
