The View From 1776

Obamacare Orwellian Newspeak

Commentary’s website has a report on the liberal-progressive defense of Obamacare.

Liberty, in Obama-Big Brother Newspeak, means collectivized government forcing everyone to buy insurance.

Liberal-progressives always have maintained the dogma that there can be no liberty in a society that allows people to keep what they earn or inherit.  Liberty, in their understanding of social justice, requires that collectivized government make everyone equally poor.

  1. How ironic is it that the "Individual Mandate" that has been the subject of great debate by the Conservatives, was originally an idea that came out of the Heritage Foundation!?

    Obama wanted to go with a single payer form of health care, but was convinced by his advisers and the Republicans that only with the Mandage, could the bill be passed. The Mandate was supported by a host of conservatives (before they were against it!) including, Gingrich, Lugar, Hatch, Romney, Chaffee, etc, etc. They were all for it until Obama came out for it - then it suddenly became anathema and anti-constitutional!

  3. Bob,

    Thanks for the clarification as to Pauly preceding Heritage in endorsement of the Individual Mandate.
