Patrick Henry must be rolling in his grave -- I believe he would stringently object to this major expansion of government power. I would love to have health insurance, and I would love to see the system reformed. But the current legislation really infringes on states' rights, so I have to object to it.

I currently have no coverage at all. Luckily nothing calamitous has happened, and if I have some kind of sinus infection or something that won't go away, I head to an urgent care facility and make my best deal. I walk in, fill out a form, see a doctor, write a check and I'm out of there for $85.

But I worry about the future. All of us know our health will fail someday, and we'll need a backup plan when that time comes. Only a fool would say they don't need or don't want a policy.

Still, I worry that this is a slippery slope. What's to stop the government from mandating which color shirt you wear? I think the Supreme Court will find that the health care bill is unconstitutional, so I'm not worried about being forced to make a choice.
