Democrats don’t know what’s best
To the editor:
The fundamental conceit of liberals is simply this: we know what is best for you. We know what kind of light bulbs you should buy, we know what size soda you should drink, we know how you should build your neighborhoods and cluster your homes. And if you don’t like it, too bad; we’re going to make you take your medicine anyway because it’s good for you.
The inevitable consequence of this Big Brother Knows Best philosophy is now on full display, as millions of nominally independent American adults are being bludgeoned unwillingly into Obamacare. “If you like your health insurance you can keep it, but only if we think it’s good for you.”
If we let bureaucrats and Democrats dictate our personal health care decisions, what does freedom mean?
