One sure sign of a scam is an offering with a title that's the opposite of what the scam is really about. One of the best, most recent examples of this is the Affordable Care Act.
Everyone should compare the annual premiums for the Obamacare bronze and higher plans with the annual cost of the penalty (the tax). As long as paying the penalty plus paying out-of-pocket for minor illnesses is less than the cost of the mandated insurance, only the arithmetically ignorant will sign up for the insurance.
