Fed up with federal expansion
June 23, 2010
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had about all I can take of government expansion. It was bad enough before Obama. Now it’s insane.
I do not want the government telling food companies how much salt they can put in my food. I don’t want the government making restaurants pay for scientific research (and therefore having to raise the price of my meal) so they can prominently publish the nutritional information of my meals. I know a Big Mac and french fries are loaded with fat and calories, and anyone not smart enough to know that is probably not smart enough to make decisions by looking at a calorie-defined menu.
My health care is none of the government’s business. It is between me and my doctor. I do not want my health records in a government database. I do not want the government telling my doctor how much he can charge. If he can’t charge enough, he won’t be there when I need him.
What gives government the right to make these decisions? We do, by being silent. So speak up!
And I say “Hurrah for Arizona!” At least one government is looking out for its citizens.
