Socialized Medicine = Loss of Freedom

Author: Rory B. Bellows

The Totalitarians are at it again. There new nanny state scheme has been concocted in Alabama. State workers will not have to pay a $25 fee for healthcare that was otherwise “free” if they do not lose enough weight by 2010. While giving away healthcare is outrageous and public employees getting an unearned benefit by receiving taxpayer subsidized healthcare is obscene, this is not a scheme designed to defray the cost or make workers actually pay for the healthcare the government is now providing them with money stolen from tax payers.

This is far worse, this is government using healthcare to effect people’s choices. The state of Alabama is now saying you do not have a right to be fat. While less fat chicks is an obvious benefit and one we should all applaud, we should not take joy in individuals being forced at the point of a gun to lose weight. This is the social engineers constructing a straw man to disguise their real intent of dictating people’s lives.
