I agree with Paul Ryan when he said we are a free country and we have the right to purchase something or not purchase it. I profoundly, utterly, inexorably disagree with him when he says it’s our job, meaning the federal government, to make health care affordable. That is not the job of the federal government. That is not in the Constitution. It is nowhere in law. That is a self-assumed job on the part of the Congress because they are afraid to take away benefits that Obamacare unconstitutionally gave out.
