What was she talking about? McCaskill was on MSNBC talking about the Obamacare law, website and exchanges. A law with over 20,000 pages giving government the power to regulate every aspect of healthcare -- a law that mandates people buy insurance which has to be approved by government - a law that will cause the cancelllation of up to 130 million policies, according to some experts -- and McCaskill says they're building a free market.
McCaskill also said that in a free market every action causes a reaction, so they have to make sure that in their "free market" there are no unintended consequences. I don't know how to respond. McCaskill appears to believe what she's saying. Someone told here at some point that Obamacare is built on free market principles, and McCaskill doesn't possess the knowledge necessary to know better, so she's parroting what she heard. I could be wrong. McCaskill could be fully aware that Obamacare is anything but a free market, but I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.
Anyone who doesn't see the absurdity in calling Obamacare a free market process has no business being in a position of power. The bottom line is that McCaskill represents why we must have a limited government. Not only is Obamacare un-Constitutional, these people have no idea what they're doing. The idea that McCaskill is concerned with preventing unintended consequences in the process of "building a free market" is so sadly and pathetically hilarious I don't know whether to laugh or jump off a bridge.
What's scary is that we have representatives like McCaskill in positions of power who're making decisions that effect the economy and all our lives in very personal ways. Whether it's ignorance or purposeful manipulation and propaganda, it's incredible that Americans have allowed this to happen to our country.
