Here is more information from Lin Zinser (founder of FIRM, now at the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights):
John Lewis will close our first season of the Chicago Speaker Series, with his talk, "Health Care Reform: Setting Doctors Free." Tuesday, May 24, at 6:30 pm. If you're in the Chicago area, please come. Invite your Chicago friends to attend. If you can't make it live, livestream!!!Diana and I recently heard him give a version of this talk here in Denver, and it is superb. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in this topic.
"Government medicine treats doctors as cogs in a giant machine, run from Washington, as if treating patients required no independent thought or action. Twenty-eight states have filed suit against Obamacare, claiming it is unconstitutional. But it is much worse than that. It is a moral assault on free people, and an attack on human life itself."
John Lewis has a unique perspective on this issue, both as an advocate for individual rights and as a cancer patient. Don't miss this hard-hitting lecture on the deepest evil of government medicine.
