Referendum on Obamacare
Today's Wall Street Journal has an op-ed by Christopher DeMuth on Obamacare and the election. He sees the election as a referendum on Obamacare as well as liberty. He notes that most Americans pay little attention to the federal government except when elections roll around because government doesn't affect most people in a regular way. Exceptions are highly regulated industries, and some incentives for taking on mortgage debt. But, if the president is reelected and Obamacare is strenthened, we will regularly deal with the government. I think it is worth reading.
