Why does no one speak of the government doing to the insurance industry, what it did to the mortgage industry?

I think by now, there is little dispute that the government; by forcing banks to take on risky mortgage loans, put the entire country in a state of financial collapse. Why then, would anyone think it a good idea, that the government force the insurance companies to do the same? After all: all health insurance is; is temporary mitigation of our own personal, yet certain demise.

    It surprises me that so many Americans seem not to be aware about Obama’s healthcare plans [a]. During the election, he campaigned for these changes stating that he felt it was unfair to have a system where insurance companies try to escape paying claims and was elected to bring in changes [b].
    First of all, too many people do not know that Obama wants to make insurance more available to all. His system is similar to that which works in Holland, Taiwan [c] and Switzerland. It works there and private healthcare companies provide most the insurance to the people there.
    FACT – the USA spends more on healthcare PER PERSON than any other nation on the planet [d].
    FACT – insurance companies admit that they push up costs, buy politicians and do not pay out for many claims when they should [e].
    FACT – the US has higher death rates for kids aged under five than western European countries with universal health coverage [f].

    That means that a dead American four year old would have had a better chance of life if they were born in Canada, France, the Netherlands, Cuba, Switzerland, Germany, Japan etc, all of which have universal health coverage. And no western European nation with universal healthcare has moved away from it. And the sad thing is, that the insurance companies have spent loads of money to fight these reforms [g] and loads of politicians are taking the thirty pieces of silver from them to fight the reforms, rather than fight for the health of the American people.

    Remember, I back my facts up with evidence. Those who say they are wrong tend not to. If they are wrong, e-mail me with proof and let me know.
