When I first saw the Orwellian title, I had to stop and take a second look. Indeed, a couple of Leftist authors titled their article. “Yes, the Health-Care Mandate Is About Liberty“. Hmmm, they used quaint observations such as:
The real threat to liberty… the failure of the health-insurance market.
The mandate would seem to fall well within current boundaries of the government’s power to regulate interstate commerce and to do whatever is “necessary and proper” for carrying out its duties…
They might as well just cut to the chase and say: “You must do as the government says so that you can be free.”
