The positive comparison says, yes, it's OK to require people to buy health insurance--we require them to buy auto insurance, don't we?
Republican Attorneys General planning lawsuits are featuring this response: you aren't required to buy a car, that's a choice. So, if you choose to buy a car you can be required to have insurance, to protect others from the cost of accidents you may cause. But with health care, they say, the government is directly requiring that people purchase a product and that's what makes it different.
Leave it to the experts to decide how this plays out legally--state vs. federal jurisdiction, interstate commerce, whatever the technical issues are. But as a matter of sheer logic there's this:
Someday you will get sick or injured. That's not an option. It will happen. And if you are not insured other people will have to pay for your care. So the real analogy with auto insurance is this: you are driving a car from the day you are born.
