Is the drive to repeal Obamacare an example of tyranny? So says a letter from Highland (Sept 6), which defines tyranny as "a minority attempt to rule the majority."
What majority? Every national poll — before the health care travesty was passed and since — shows a clear majority of Americans oppose it. To say Obamacare represents the will of the majority is ludicrous.
It passed only because of the unprecedented use of threats, intimidation, bribes and backroom deals to coerce enough votes in Congress. Obamacare represents the height of corrupt, Chicago-style political thuggery.
Now comes word (Times, Sept 15) that Catholic hospitals and health facilities will be forced to violate their faith by providing abortion services or be punished with "hundreds of millions of fines," thanks to our noble president's signature legislation. Now that, my friends, is tyranny.
