Redirected blame in Obamacare

There is a point being missed big time by conservative and, frankly, liberal commentators and politicians. The line goes something like this:

"everyone should be required to buy health insurance because otherwise the uninsured who need emergency care will be forcing others to pay for them."

That is not correct. It is the government that forces everyone to pay for the uninsured. The government is the only one making anyone do anything here. And pretty soon we'll all be paying for just about EVERYONE anyway. So where is their point on this one?
