As I noted recently, the nature of the health care debate has declined dramatically in recent months. Once Scott Brown was elected in Massachusetts, the intellectual debate ended. The Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats shifted their thinking away from persuading the American people to looking for loopholes that would allow them to pass their plans “by any means possible.”
That is why this recent column from my colleague John Hood at our sister think tank in North Carolina, the John Locke Foundation is so refreshing. Hood, like me, has clearly had enough with debating the shape-shifting, nation-bankrupting plan that will likely be voted on in the House this weekend. Instead, he’s calling for civil disobedience as the only moral reaction to this Constitutionally-bankrupted debacle.
I for one see no other alternative and would be happy to join Mr. Hood in taking this last stand for freedom.
