George Will On Obamacare: "You're Free To Choose If You Choose The Right Thing"

|

BRET BAIER: Obviously, the administration had this rollout with the website. Still dealing with those problems. But now, really the details, the substance of can you keep your plan and all of these people getting notices around the country that they're getting dropped.

GEORGE WILL: And as a result, the supporters of Obamacare are pioneering new dimensions of sophistry. Steny Hoyer, the second ranking Democrat in the House, today said the president should have caveated it. That's a clunky verb. What he means is he should have put asterisk over the statement. And the asterisk would say, 'You could keep your insurance if and only if you buy the insurance that we think you ought to have.' Which reveals the part of Obamacare that is applied Bloombergism. The mayor of New York's been a very candid progressive. He says, 'I know what you ought to eat, I know what you ought to drink and I'm going to use the police power of the city to make you do it.' And Obamacare says exactly the same thing -- you're free to choose if you choose the right thing.
