6/23/09 – Obama Presser – Comrade Obama in response to a question on his health-care legislation made comments about “free market advocates” that suggested these interests were in opposition to his position. We have a President that has come out as something other than an advocate of the free market and quite frankly does not understand what a free market is. This point was underscored when Obama indicated that those free market advocates should not be concerned with competition from a “public” option. When it comes to options the government always has an unfair advantage.
