And We Thought Mitt’s Mandate Was Bad…

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has announced that preventive care and regular check ups would be mandatory under his new health care plan. Every American would be required to get an annual physical and tests, such as mammograms and colonoscopies as frequently as the government deemed prudent. Although he didn’t spell out the penalties, we can look forward to Americans being hauled into court for failing to provide proof of a blood test.

The Nanny State marches on.
