Wolf: Obamacare Is Worth Getting Angry About

Dr. Milton Wolf has a great new OpEd at the Washington Times, "Obamacare is worth getting angry about".

He makes many good points, but I wanted to highlight this passage:
For the first time in the history of our republic, our government has demanded that every American, upon the condition of breathing, be forced to enter a legal contract with government-approved corporations. Not even King George III dared impose such control. In truth, if a government can force you to patronize companies of its choosing, the fundamental relationship between the government and the individual is irrevocably changed. If it is allowed to stand, there will be no part of your life the government cannot control and no crony it cannot enrich -- with your money.

Isn’t that worth getting angry about?
(Read the full text of "Obamacare is worth getting angry about".)

I don't know whether or not Mitt Romney will be the eventual GOP nominee for the 2012 presidential race. But if he is, our best hope for moving the country in the right direction with respect to health care policy is for Americans to keep up the pressure, letting him know that we want ObamaCare repealed.

Thank you, Milton, for reminding us what's at stake -- it's not just our health care but our basic freedoms.
