Sen. Bernie Sanders is apparently now an expert on what it means to be “truly free.”
Are you truly free if you work 100 hours a week because you can’t find a job with a living wage? Are you free if you have no health care?

Now how could that problem get solved quickly? If only there was a way for the government to step in and lower the amount of income that is extracted from the person’s paycheck and not FORCE the individual to purchase healthcare.
True freedom is the state seizing most of your income to destroy incentive for new product and service creation https://t.co/jESPvkkpyv

– You are not free if you work 100 hours a week bc gov takes half ur paycheck.
– You are not free if gov forces u to buy healthcare. https://t.co/tjKuW31WCY

Indeed, one is only "truly free" when he must pay the State more than half of his income, plus a 25% VAT https://t.co/HfRk4Ib8mZ

True freedom is the government getting out of the way of creative citizens so that they can use their abilities to make as much as they can to support themselves and their families.
