No, the budget should not be used to kill the "Obama Compulsory Health Care Act." When I think about the government shutdown, I immediately think of the men and women of the armed forces that put forth their lives every day to protect and uphold our freedoms. How can Congress be allowed to put the hurt on these soldiers when they sit back and continue to get paid huge salaries?
How can the United States government require U.S. citizens to select a health care option or suffer a penalty fee? What happened to the freedom of choice? The right to say no has been infringed.
