What’s in a word has become very troubling to those who primarily use words for a living…at least to those who try to use words in their long-accepted definitions. Should I go any further than Affordable Healthcare or American Healthcare? I want to holler every time I hear a politician, a pundit, an activist …even myself refer to this debate over health insurance as healthcare. What we’re talking about is money and government mandates on what we must buy. That’s un-health to any person who cares about liberty. There’s another word….how does liberty equate with liberal in these times? Is that how the Libertarian moniker was born?
Don’t know where I’m going with this….so I’ll stop. I have a lot of reading to do…trying to figure out what the latest proposed healthcare plan might mean to my actual health.
