No Work Without Proof of Health Insurance?

I am a Conservative willing to talk about Health Care Reform. I think that the current system is broken and needs to be fixed. But Democrats are making no friends with truly extremist approaches to the issue which cater to the worst accusations of their opponents.
She said she could envision a day when "you have to show proof to your employer that you're insured as a part of the job interview — like when your kid goes to school and has to show proof of vaccination," but said such details would be worked out through negotiations with Congress.
Sigh. I know Senator Clinton wants to "own" this issue, but she would do well to consider the views of the Middle on this. Statements like this are certain to haunt her in the General Election.
