An Apple a Day Keeps the Feds Away

Joe Guarino points to Edwards’ new health plan, calling it “totalitarian”. While I think “totalitarian” may be a bit overwrought, I do agree that it’s overly intrusive of the government to require doctors visits by law.

I can understand the logic behind requiring it, but legislation to this effect seems over the line. A better idea might be to create incentives to get preventative healthcare, such as a tax credit for meeting some minimum healthcare requirements.

If something like this went through, it would also be interesting to see the collision with certain faiths that reject medical intervention.
