Here’s a poor, unsuccessful letter I sent to the editor of the Washington Post:
“Health‐care provision at center of Supreme Court debate was a Republican idea” [Mar. 27, A7] describes the health care law Mitt Romney signed while governor of Massachusetts as comprised of “free‐market ideas.” Really?
RomneyCare’s individual mandate, now mirrored in ObamaCare, uses the power of the state to compel people to health insurance. What could be more un‐free than that?
