New meaning to the criminal "code"

Glad to see the folks who believe in personal freedom and lower health care costs have come upon a scheme to do neither: requiring you to go to the doctor every time you get a cold.

I've already railed on this a few times, but I just can't help but wonder why the criminalization of the common cold remains in the public arena while we are coping with a shortage of primary care doctors and an abundance of wasteful costs in the health care system.

We are already forced to hand over our drivers' licenses to buy the medication we need to clear stuffy heads and nasal passages. Why in heaven's name should we also be forced to sit in a physician's waiting room with other sniffers and sneezers and share our misfortunes?

Isn't it about time we unclog the heads of those who think the many should sacrifice for the misdeeds of the few?
