Robert Tracinski Biography

Title:
Editor and Publisher of the Intellectual Activist
Position:
Con to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“So under the guise of making health insurance more affordable, the Democrats’ plan will restrict your menu of choices to include only the most expensive options. It restricts your choice of which insurance to buy and pushes us all into more expensive plans. At the same time it destroys the economic incentive to purchase insurance in the first place.”
