John Stossel has a good piece on the Governor of California's latest left-wing boondoggle, mandated health insurance:

With a rational government policy, people would save money for routine medical care and buy insurance for solvency-threatening illness. After all, we don't buy
auto insurance to pay for oil changes and worn-out windshield-wiper blades. But today, people expect medical insurance to cover routine physical exams because someone else seems to pay the premiums.

That sounds familiar.
