Libertarian Joshua Katz: The Individual Mandate of Obamacare in Comparison With the Individual Mandate Associated With Public Education

Joshua Katz's column at is linked below.

Joshua Katz: Individual Mandates in Healthcare and Education

"There is a group of people in this country who face precisely such a mandate.  There is a group of people, a rather large group, all of whom are forbidden to vote, who face the requirement to either make use of a particular government service or purchase a government-approved alternative, or prepare a government-approved alternative at home (although this last option is constantly in jeopardy.)  They face this requirement, not in light of any voluntary action, such as owning a car, but rather simply by virtue of age.  I refer, of course, to students and mandatory school attendance."
