National Radio Commentary on Salem/Townhall: Obamacare Breakdown is a Liberty Moment January 8, 2014

Posted by daviddavenport in Op/Eds, Radio Commentaries.

The breakdown of Obamacare has delivered some powerful messages that should resonate for a long while.

First, big government doesn’t work. It can’t build robust websites, sign up people or deliver on its promises.

Second, we don’t need a complete government takeover of something like health care to meet the needs of the 15 percent or so who wanted health care and couldn’t get it. Small, tailored solutions make more sense.

Third and most important, this is a liberty moment. Millions of Americans are angry because they don’t have the freedom to keep their own policies. The government has taken working policies and declared them illegal.

Conservatives are for liberty and against big government. But to many people—especially young people—those messages have become abstract. Thanks to Obamacare, they are now very real and highly relevant.

Let’s not let the country forget it.
