Limiting Liberty

There are so many news stories recently about the President’s 2010 budget.
Stocks of healthcare and pharmaceutical companies stocks fell on Thursday after this budget was unveiled. President Obama wants healthcare providers to bid to provide Medicare Advantage plans in order to reduce the amount of many paid to subsidize these plans. He also wants to reduce money given to pharmaceutical companies for providing prescription to Medicaid participants.
The President plans to allow the Bush Tax cuts to expire, raising the amount of taxes paid by “rich” Americans. He also wants to reduce the deductions these Americans can take on their taxes for charitable contributions.
These are just aca few things the President has planned to help pay for the new budget and his ambitious goal to cut the deficit in half by 2013. It is clear that liberty is not framework our government is operating under. People and businesses are not allowed to do what is best for them but rather, what the government has deemed is best for the “society.”
