Fantastic OP/ED from John Cochrane in the WSJ on the red herring that is the birth control mandate.
When the government can force an employer to provide a particular type of drug coverage, the y can force them to not provide drug coverage. Won’t be long before they can mandate which drug you take.
I don’t think anyone would consider that ‘choice’ or ’empowerment’, but apparently some do.
The problem here isn’t that the government is forcing coverage for a particular drug, it is that we let the government can do that in the first place.
