As we all know, nothing say liberty like the government forcing everyone to buy a product or face tax confiscation.
Washington (CNSNews.com) – Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said Wednesday that the individual insurance mandate in the Democrats’ health care law has nothing to do with individual liberty.
“[W]e have been hearing that this is all about individual liberty, the right to be let alone. But is it really?” Conyers asked in his opening statement.
“The liberty interests at stake do not change simply because it is the federal, rather than the state government that is imposing the requirement.
“While we can debate whether Congress has the power to impose this requirement – something I believe we clearly do – we should not scare Americans into believing that how we resolve that question says anything about their individual liberty.”
Sounds like ignorance and arrogance to me.
Conyers is the same progressive dipshit who said this infamous comment:
We should totally believe this asshole knows the difference between individual liberty (you buy what you want) and ObamaCare’s individual mandate (government FORCING you to buy a product).
