Mandatory Blood Donation
Just think of the potential savings, not just in lives, but more importantly, in the federal budget. I'm no medical expert, but it should be fairly straight forward to come up with a figure spelling out the cost savings for Mr. John Q. Taxpayer due to the ready access to compatible blood in the ER, since he is paying for so many of those visits for the uninsured and the insurance for the insured (Author's Note: remind me to draft a plan on an O negative blood type breeding program). Further, think of all the money it will save the blood banks. If everyone is forced (sorry, incentivized) to give blood, they can stop calling me three times a day and asking me to donate.
