Some politicians have a basic attitude that “we the people” are too stupid to take care of ourselves. So, enter regulation and a blank government check. What happens? ObamaCare!

Gov. Tom Corbett came out with a commonsense approach to solving the insurance problem for some Pennsylvanians. Right away, no one thinks low-income people have brains to make choices when it comes to their own good! Recipients would share the cost, making choices, and using money for those choices would take on a new meaning for them.

Welcome to the free market that made our country great.

I believe that through no fault of their own, people at times need help with medical care, and our state is successful enough to help those few. I agree with Corbett that by treating people with dignity and realizing they can make choices for their own health care, they will make the best choices for themselves.

Individuals have different needs, and different people can decide how to best fit their situations with the help offered. Not only is Corbett helping the situation with ObamaCare, he is putting in place an exit strategy as well. That to me is the most important piece in the guidelines.

“Bravo!” for Corbett. Pennsylvanians should be proud of his thoughtfulness in this highly charged matter.
