ObamaCare: Don't say you weren't warned

Yesterday's Wall Street Journal editorial page told the remarkable story of some senior citizens who desired to opt out of Medicare coverage without losing their Social Security benefits.  They were willing to pay their medical costs entirely by private means.  Rules that originated in the Clinton administration tied Medicare benefits to Social Security benefits, requiring mandatory acceptance of Medicare coverage in order to retain Social Security benefits.  A federal judge initially sided with the seniors as recently as fall 2009 and later completely reversed her decision. 

One has to wonder why the federal judge completely reversed her original decision.  Apparently the Obama administration took a strong interest in this court case.  The twisted logic the judge presented to support her reversal is stunning.  The implications of this Chicago style compulsion are ominous.  Read the article.  You won't believe this could happen in America.
