Hold the Pork on that Ham Sandwich

Reading this editorial in today’s Baltimore Sun makes me realize that the world is full of people who believe in square circles, mighty hurricanes whose strongest winds are but gentle breezes, and (of course) cats that bark.  I sent this letter in response:

You are right to decry the increasing politicization of health-care (“Medicine trumps politics,” Nov. 24).

But you are also unreasonable to do so.  Yours is among the most strident voices in support of Obamacare.  To demand more government-enforced and financed health-care arrangements and to decry the inevitable politics that arises in response to this government intervention is like demanding government-enforced and financed free love and decrying the inevitable resulting increase in unwanted pregnancies and STDs.
