Health Care Repeal Efforts
In an article for the San Francisco Chronicle, David DeCosse objects to the libertarian argument for "freedom" as it pertains to a person's decision to get health care insurance.
"'Freedom' in an American political context is a potent word," DeCosse says. "But it has proved an unsuccessful battle cry in the health care debate because the notion of freedom invoked by the opponents of Obamacare is deeply incorrect.
"Misplaced pride about freedom...blinds one to the vulnerability of others," DeCosse says. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
