It is good to know that in John Edwards world you live only for the well-being of the state: Edwards backs mandatory preventive care
Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said on Sunday that his universal health care proposal would require that Americans go to the doctor for preventive care.
"It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care," he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. "If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK."
Well, that is just f@#%!$-ing spiffy.
So, Edwards wants to use the coercive power of the state to stamp a Grade A brand on my ass? He's got another thing coming.
What's next? A "Strength Through Joy" program?
