Letter to the Editor: Obamacare is about power


People think that Obamacare is having a decent health insurance. The truth is, it is about the power of the federal government to tell you what you should buy or should not buy. It is the freedom of commerce.

People should have the right to buy what they want so long as it does not hurt their neighbor, and they have the right to not buy something if they don’t want it.

Obamacare has a clause that states if you refuse to buy health insurance, you will be fined. I went for over 20 years without health insurance. I am glad I was not fined for not purchasing health insurance.

No government official should have the power to regulate the freedom of commerce (buying and selling) so long as you don’t hurt others.
