You'll be subsidized if you can't afford it. Otherwise, it's pretty much like car insurance, so was the game already over decades ago?
I am so tired of this "it is like car insurance" bullshit. I don't drive, Portland has got an excellent public transportation system and I don't need a flipping car, so I don't have to buy car insurance. However, I will have to buy health insurance or be fined. Total and utter bullshit. What the hell happened to personal liberty? Why the hell do I have to be "mandated" to buy anything from a private company? The federal government can go fuck themselves.
