They don't want you to know about health freedom

A Lexington attorney representing plaintiffs seeking only to opt out of the federal Medicare program is getting more national attention online as his case heats up:
"Why, though, would someone choose to forgo health coverage for which one has already paid? Opting out of Medicare may be legal, but is it smart? Mr Brown explained that there are many reasons why someone might choose to decline it, including the desire to make one's own health care decisions without government intervention. Folks see what's happening in England, for example, and want no part of that."

Kent Masterson Brown got a lot of attention locally as a speaker at the Kentucky Tea Party.

You may have read about this case first last fall in the Bluegrass Policy Blog, but the state's two largest newspapers have slept through the story.
