I would vote for socialized car insurance over medicine anyday. Uninsured motorists cause lots of collateral damage and injuries to themselves and others, causing hospitals to absorb the medical costs for unpaid bills.

Instead of destroying an already good health care system, why not just implement socialized auto insurance? We're already forced to deal with the DMV, why not just take it a step further? Socialized auto insurance would also be able to cover those injured in accidents, same as socialized health.

ETA: IF you were forced to choose between health & auto insurance (hypothetical, not literally suggesting it.)

They say our insurance rates are so high due to uninsured/underinsured motorists. Thus I would say we already have a somewhat socialized auto insurance.

Hell no.

You want to pay for auto insurance for every illegal?

I have a better idea....driving without insurance would no longer be an infraction and would become a misdemeanor. That means either a huge fine or jail time, or both.

It's a basic principle of deviance: Make the consequence for the "reward" (driving without insurance) high enough, and nobody will seek the reward.
