Your Views: Pitts missing point that Obamacare dashes freedom

Leonard Pitts’ criticism of Dr. Carson in Thursday’s Gazette is blatantly unfair.

Pitts doesn’t seem to realize that the issue here is freedom. The horrendous events that he lists between the time of slavery and the institution of the Affordable Care Act had nothing to do with the government’s infringement on the people’s liberty.

Obamacare’s violation of the First Amendment and its requirement that we purchase a product that we don’t want are serious encroachments on our freedom. The future repeal of the ACA will be almost as significant as the Emancipation Proclamation.
