Wouldn't a more responsive (and less costly to the taxpayer) plan be to establish a requirement that any company offering health insurance must offer it nationwide, thus increasing competition and providing the consumer with a greater range of plans and costs from which to choose?
Are "We the People" so gullible as to believe that this continuous and blatant government intrusion into the private sector is anything less than the action of a tyrannical dictator? A dictator so intoxicated by the fumes of his own power that he has forgotten the true power rests with the people? Or, is it we who have forgotten that we are the power - and he is just taking advantage of that fact? I am so embarrassed by this left-wing socialist-progressive government that if I were traveling overseas I'd be telling people "I'm a Canadian, eh!"
