If you examine survey data, or just generally follow the New York Times you will find this odd, I think, contradiction. Even among advocates of single-payer (that is insurance), there is vehement support for having the right to choose one’s doctor. That indeed was a selling point of ObamaCare.
However, it is highly likely that many who support ObamaCare are also the most outspoken supporters of government schooling, and the most outspoken and strongly opinionated folks who oppose vouchers and the expansion of school choice programs.
So, let’s review. When it comes to health care decisions – the freedom to choose which person or persons treats us is sacred. When it comes to educational decisions – the freedom to choose which person or persons indoctrinate – oops, I mean teach, us is not sacred, it is in fact the end of the world as we know it.
