Earlier this month, I watched TV just enough to hear a Republican congressman tell the Iowa folks that "Obamacare" must be stripped clean from the books because it infringes on your freedom.
What a moron! Health care separated from employment is freedom. Health care that will keep me on even if I get sick is freedom. Health care that will assist me with a very ill child, spouse or parent who needs intense attention at great expense is freedom. Most of my family and many friends live in Canada and my best friend has many, many elderly relatives in Switzerland. None of those people fret over whether a poor state of health will drive their life into the ditch. None! That is freedom.
This country's politicians will never be smarter or wiser than the people who vote for them and we are not funding education. For that reason, this country will never reach its presumed potential. What a shame.
