A False View of Freedom

Two recent lines used as my Facebook status:

Conservatives and libertarians believe that our health care system makes us more free than the rest of the industrialized world. A system which leads to millions being uninsured and placing even those with insurance at risk of bankruptcy if they get sick does not mean we are more free–it means we are backwards.

If people insist on keeping their current insurance plans that is one thing, but please don’t also block plans to allow others to voluntarily buy into Medicare or a public option.
