Lawmaker: Obamacare 'greatest assault on freedom in our lifetime'
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) called Obamacare the "greatest assault on freedom in our lifetime" in an interview with the Atlas Society.
"I think Americans are a little bit like frogs in that pot of water," he said. "The water's being brought up to boil." He said he ran for Senate in 2010 because of President Barack Obama's health care law, which he called "greatest assault on freedom in our lifetime." He said that "collectively" Americans were suffering from Stockholm Syndrome due to the loss of their freedoms.
"So we're going to the Supreme Court, begging them please, please allow us this one last shred of freedom," he said. "Allow us the freedom to decide what product we're going to purchase or not purchase. And unfortunately for Americans, for our freedoms, we were denied that right."
