The ‘bottom line’: Freedom

Bowling Green resident Mike Kanan told Daily News reporter Jenna Mink that “the bottom line has to be everybody gets health care.”

No, Mike.

The “bottom line has to be” that everybody is free to make their own decisions.

The “bottom line has to be” that decisions about medical care are made by doctors and their patients, not the government.

The “bottom line has to be” not only that the government stays out of the health-insurance business, but that it encourages competition among private insurers and providers.
