Individual mandates for health insurance would be a disaster if that were the only health care reform on the table. That’s why Obama rejected the idea when Hillary Clinton proposed it when campaigning for the primaries. The full picture of health care reform includes provisions that may be made more effective by requiring the population to have some form of health insurance, such as lowering costs for health care over time and ending abusive practices of for-profit insurance companies. None of the proposed changes alone would make a huge difference in our health care system, or even be advisable, without the presence of the others.
