Two Fundamental Questions for Obamacare Advocates

Beven Sabo at Free Market Mojo on the two fundamental questions to ask in the nationalized health care debate:
Assuming, for the sake of argument, that Obamacare is better and cheaper than the current system (which it is not), I believe it would still be detrimental to our long-term interests. The threat to liberty posed by Obamacare is grievous. For both practical and philosophical reasons, every American should be horrified by the very thought of President Obama’s proposed health care plan. As Ayn Rand wrote about such programs, two questions must be asked: “By what right?” and “At whose expense?”

"By what right?" is exactly right. Even if the plan worked and wouldn't cost a dime (it fails on both accounts),it is still unconstitutional.
