In my mind, this article at the Heritage Foundation cuts to the heart of the differences over Obamacare. Here’s the headline:
The White House Thought They Knew What Health Plan You Should Have. They Were Wrong.
To me, that is the crux. Who knows best what you need? I (and real Conservatives–not RINOs) think that YOU know best. YOU are the one who knows the details of your situation. YOU know what you need. YOU know what you can afford. YOU are the one best qualified to decide you would rather do x instead of y. Now, along with this comes some responsibility…if YOU make poor choices, YOU are the one responsible.
The liberals and Democrats think they know best. They think they know what is good for you. They think they are the ones who want to help you. All the while, they are probably making totally opposite choices for themselves based on what THEY think is good for them (my evidence is how they exclude themselves from many of the laws they make for us).
