As we look at what is happening in health care, it is time to look at what is the proper role of government. Few people seem happy with the government telling us what we should do or should buy and there are even times when the state does the same.
Where is the line drawn? Once our federal and state governments provide money that they tell you how you must spend, will the next step be telling you how to spend all of your money?
The federal government being the most removed from direct contact with the people has the least ability to know how best to serve their constituents. Conversely, the government closest to the people can have the greatest impact on the people and the greatest ability to know what the people want and/or need.
