The Infantalization of the Political Class

Daniel Henninger on the real effect of nationalized health care and Obama's "optional" program.  It is not just the people that are rendered indolent by government on auto-handout. 

I find the word "optional" especially suspect in all this.  After all, the only optional part is taking the service--you pay for it whether you want to or not. If a man sticks a gun in my face, cleans out my wallet and, on taking his leave, offers me a banana, was really a voluntary transaction?
