Zombie: Redistributing Health Care

I think there are many good arguments for universal health care. But I'm against mandatory health care on moral grounds. It's immoral to force individuals to buy something they don't want. It's also immoral to use force to take my money and give it to someone you deem more "deserving" than me.

Zombie makes a similar argument in this essay: Why America Hates Universal Health Care. Apparently he thinks it's wrong to use government force to subsidize people who engage in unhealthy behaviors.
