Now that everyone can see what the government takeover of health care will look like, it’s not so pretty. The Obama administration’s ruling on “reproductive health” and religious institutions is just the start. Everything about medical care becomes political when the government takes it over. And to my lefty friends who are high-fiving about Obama putting the Catholics in their place, consider this: With a government takeover of health care — and elections being what they are — how sure are you that the conservatives won’t one day take over? At that point they’d be free to use the mechanism of government health care to pursue their very different agenda on “reproductive health.”
Free men and women deserve better than this, but politicized health care is what you get when you have the government in charge. Government then becomes your master, not your servant.
