Clark specifically will speak on the provision that mandates all Americans have health insurance or else they pay a fine.  He will explain that as a young healthy person he has voluntarily chosen not to purchase health insurance and instead invests in his own savings.  Clark will express that he is not alone and that thousands of other young people choose not to have health insurance and do not want to be forced by the government to purchase it against their will.
