The people who value free markets and personal liberty, that is. The Obama Administration plans to appeal to your common sense, using the language of capitalism and personal freedom, in its quest to control your health care. From The Foundry, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said,
I think if you listen to the debate on Capitol Hill about health care you’re likely to hear two very important words: choice and competition. A public option that you’re referring to is nothing more than the ability to provide more choice through competition. Those, I think, are values that you’ll hear throughout this debate as being held near and dear to the hearts of not just people on Capitol Hill, but throughout the country. And the President and Congress are working to design health care reform that provides more choice and more competition.
There’s a video at the link of a Berkeley professor talking about the political benefits of defining Obamacare in those terms, and an admission from Rep. Schakowsky that the goal of Obamacare is to get rid of the private insurance industry.
Nationalized health care represents the antithesis of the free market and personal freedom. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
