Anyone who doubted that the Democrats mean to nationalize everyone’s health coverage need doubt no longer. The Democratic health care bill bans private individual health covarage.

The provision grandfathers those with existing coverage, but by preventing any insurer from taking on new customers, it ensures that the days of private insurance are numbered. People will not be able to switch insurers, and when their plan inevitably folds, they will be forced into the government plan.
