Re: last week's Forum page debate over Obamacare. Ask anyone from Canada or England about government-run health care. One-size-fits-all thinking is just stupid. Ask yourself what government program, starting with President Johnson's War on Poverty in 1965, has not grown beyond its original budget. Obamacare limits the profits insurance companies can make. Where in our Constitution is there authority for the government to limit private business and its profits? We're on a slippery slope, folks.
