It all started with a tweet from Speaker Ryan about freedom being the ability to buy what you want to fit the need you have.
Freedom is the ability to buy what you want to fit what you need. Obamacare is Washington telling you what to buy regardless of your needs.

Makes sense, yeah?
Of course the idea of freedom and spending your money as you see fit freaked out Bernie Sanders (and a whole lot of other socialists who get confused about living in a Republic):
What good is the freedom to buy the health care you want if you can’t afford it? https://t.co/2eKbRZoN5C

It's a lot better than not being able to buy the health care I want even when I can afford it. That's fascism. https://t.co/Hh2XLL8U5u

Bingo. The Left will never really understand basic capitalism.
This is not difficult. The Feds should never tell citizens they have to purchase a product or tell them which product they have to buy. And they sure as Hell shouldn’t penalize them with a tax if they can’t afford to buy said product.
Because yeah, that’s fascism.

Sadly it’s our healthcare that’s really ‘rekt’ these days.

For some reason, Bernie thinks people paying for health insurance they can’t afford to use is freedom.
So much facepalm.
