It really isn't.

To make the system sustainable, the healthy need to participate to offset the costs of the sick. If only the sick participate, the costs balloon and we're back to where we were pre-ACA. Repealing the individual mandate without a massive influx of funding into the system will crash the insurance markets. There's a reason literally every single medical association was against the original repeal bill in the first place.

The "spirit of freedom" and American ideals shouldn't be used as an excuse to deny people an affordable right to survive. Healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and it's fucking embarrassing that we are running behind other countries in the world and allowing companies and corporations to make a quick buck on the desperately ill.
