I’m not naive enough to believe that politics is anything but a blood sport, but it would be nice to have national media organizations whose editors and reporters remembered that their responsibility, first and foremost, is not to be shills for left-wing statists but to act as watchdogs on government.
For in fulfilling the role that our founders envisioned for a free press, Americans would have been fully apprised of the massively bureaucratic, top-down authoritarianism that is Obamacare. Granted, there were reports of this nature, but all in all, the mainstream of America has no idea – yet – just how broadly this law will control their lives while it drains their pocketbooks.
Per National Review Online:
Ever since its passage, supporters of the law have made countless attempts to convince the American people of its viability, dismissing predictions of lost jobs, decreased hours, and rising costs, among others.
Yet from major corporations to local mom-and-pop shops, from entire states to tiny school districts, a wide range of companies and institutions have seen Obamacare’s negative impact on their workers, budgets, and production.
