Because it can. (Better yet, because we let it). So why are you complaining when government tells you to purchase health insurance? It makes you buy car insurance. That employs the same logic as laughing at someone who finally gets around to screaming "rape" after having spent the last 20 years being sexually abused.
As California Representative Pete Stark said recently, "Government can do pretty much whatever it wants." In other words, "relax and enjoy it." Anyone remember a Texas gubernatorial candidate by the name of Clayton Williams from about 20 years back? I think a similar comment cost him a sure election.
Ask the people of Massachusetts how Masscare, a.k.a., ObamaCare Lite, is working for them. A full 75 percent say it does not work. If Obamacare's micro-model is a failure, why do we assume Obamacare will work? Failure in a little, failure in a lot?
