Double standard on health care

By From page A12 | October 04, 2013

I’m not sure I understand why the tea party congressional Republicans dislike Obamacare so much, except that they are opposed to “big government,” in spite of the fact that the health care is being run in a very capitalist manner. I would have preferred one single-payer option, to keep the commercial options honest.

I would find their stand more morally consistent if they were willing to give up their own government-sponsored health care, but I haven’t heard this offer so far.
