The libertarian, free-market Cato Institute has seen fit to reference a key article about healthcare on the home page of their website. Called “ 'Fearmongers' Were Right about Obamacare," this work was written by Michael D. Tanner, one of Cato's senior fellows, and was originally published in the April 30, 2010 edition of The Orange County Register.
Are you without health insurance? Do you resent being forced, under the latest unconstitutional round of federal meddling in the healthcare sector, to purchase insurance? Would you prefer to save your money or sink it into something with real value, such as gold? Believe it or not, under ObamaCare it is possible to do this without penalty.
The existence of the ObamaCare provision that forces every American, regardless of income, ability or personal preference to purchase a qualifying health insurance policy has been well reported, little attention has been paid to a similar mandate that will be far more wide-reaching, far costlier, and far more destructive to the attempts by hard-working Americans to protect their wealth.
Item: Mitt Romney stated on his Free & Strong America PAC website: “President Obama’s new healthcare law imposes higher taxes, cuts Medicare, contains insurance price controls and expands the size of our federal government. It is unhealthy for America. That is why it is critical that we elect fiscally-responsible conservative leaders who will work to repeal the worst aspects of Obamacare, restore commonsense principles to healthcare, and focus on getting our economy back on track.”
