The New York Times misses the point.

A good friend of mine forwarded me an editorial from the New York Times. In the article, the editorial board says that the country needs health care reform and supports to some extent the bills going through Congress. However, one key element of the article caught my eye. Here is how it reads,

"Both bills would broaden eligibility, and their requirement that everyone obtain insurance should also push more currently eligible people to sign up. That is a good thing."

The fundamental principle that is ignored here is the American citizen's individual right to spend their money as they see fit. It is important to point out that the idea of mandating away a free person's will runs rampant in the current Health Care Reform Legislation. I am disappointed in the New York Times, because apparently it is okay with them that health care reforms be forced on the American People.
