Eric Scheiner: What if Obamacare Really was Like Auto Insurance?

Ever since Obama took Mitt Romney’s advice and adopted the Mittster’s individual health care mandate as the cornerstone of ObamaCare, he and his minions have made the ludicrous comparison of state and creditor liability and auto insurance requirements to justify the concept.  This is nonsense, of course, and Obama’s use of this analogy has been widely panned including here at C4P shortly after he first began making it. I won’t reargue the case against Obama’s absurdity since that’s not the purpose of this post. (If you’re interested, see here.) Anyway, the point of this post is call attention to a video made by Eric Scheiner at CNS News who has taken the “illustrate absurdity by being absurd” art to a new — and hilarious — level.

Is it me? Or is the ongoing argument that the individual mandate in Obamacare is somehow the same as some states requiring proof of insurance when registering an automobile just absurd?

Can you imagine if buying car insurance was actually similar to what’s in Obamacare? It would be like absurdist theater.

For those who cannot imagine, we imagined it for you. So there’s no need to visualize, just click ‘play’ and enjoy.
