    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to have workers' wages garnisheed if they refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.
    The New York senator has criticized presidential rival Barack Obama for pushing a health plan that would not require universal coverage. Clinton has not always specified the enforcement measures she would embrace, but when pressed during a television interview, she said: "I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."

    I'd rather have my wages garnished instead of getting my son denied when we apply for private insurance on the "free market."

    I work with a few younger guys (20's and 30's) who refuse the medical insurance at work because they dont even want to pay anyhthing at all. A single man, for about $10.00 a week can get a policy with a $2000 deductible and they turn it down because they dont think they should have to pay anything. That is totally irresponsible.
