Liberals love to tell the rest of us that if we don’t like something they’re in favor of, we don’t have to participate. Oppose abortion? Fine, don’t have one. Offended by smut on TV? OK, change the channel. But when it comes to ObamaCare, suddenly personal choice goes out the window. We all have to participate–or soon will–in our president’s evolving takeover of healthcare.

Here’s what I propose. ObamaCare defenders can say whatever they want about it, but I will feel free to ignore them until they actually get on the exchanges and buy an insurance plan for themselves and their families. Then they can tell me how great it is. It’s time to put up or shut up. ObamaCare defenders need to put their money where their mouths are.
