Krusty Konservative: Obama's America

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

When Governor Culver and the Democrats made it illegal to smoke in public places, including bars and restaurants, small business owners went nuts over the fact that our government could step in and tell them how to run their business. In that case, they could sell cigarettes to their clientele, but they just couldn’t smoke them inside. If they were upset over that, I'd love to hear what they have to say about Obama's speech last night. In one breath, President Obama said that government wouldn’t take over the insurance industry, but in another breath he listed a slew of new mandates that would force them out of business. Obama said that he supports the following mandates on insurance companies: They cannot deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition. They cannot drop your coverage for any reason. They can no long place a cap on the amount of coverage you can receive in a given year or a lifetime.
