That's why insurance companies are telling the administration the mandate won't be enough for the first two years. They want more incentives - such as a late enrollment fee - to get healthy people to sign up quickly. Without getting the healthy folks in, the fear is that everyone's health insurance premiums could shoot through the roof when all those sick people get their coverage.
The purpose of Obamacare is not to get everyone on insurance, but rather to make private medical insurance completely inviable as a business thus "requiring" the government step in as the sole source for medical payments.
It's about control, not medical care.

The government is never required to do anything. Leftwingtards imagine that OUR morality will not allow THEIR plan to hurt people.
THEY are wrong.

The law is working exactly as designed.
It was intended to collapse the private insurance industry within the decade to force a clamoring for Single Payer when the day comes when most of us can't buy insurance.
