Nevada Legislature mandates insurance coverage against robot attacks

Patrick Gibbons

Nevada has 55 health insurance mandates – one of the highest numbers in the nation. Each mandate requires health insurance consumers to pay for services they may not need, like counseling for drug abuse or treatment for alcoholism. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never tried an illegal drug in your life and it doesn’t matter if you’re a teetotaler … you’ve got to pay for the coverage.

Legislators are told they are saving lives and helping people, but in reality they are helping to drive up the cost of health insurance coverage. Maybe in the not-so-distant future they will have a mandate to protect us against robots. Undoubtedly, someone will tell them it’s a great idea.
