Congressman Says Obamacare Kills The Free Market, Compares It To North Korea

Due to the lack of freedom, rarely would anyone say that they'd like to build a life in North Korea. Many would say that it seems America is also becoming less of a free market country, including Republican Rep. Dave Brat of Virginia.

At a "Hold Their Feet To The Fire" conference, Brat compared Obamacare, which regulates the free market of health insurance by sales insurance companies, to the oppressive communist government of North Korea. Brat stated:

"If you don't use the price system, you can look at every country in the world. Look at North Korea and South Korea. It’s the same culture, it’s the same people, look at a map at night, half of one of the countries is not lit, there’s no lights, and the bottom free-market country, all Koreans, is lit up. So you make your bet on which country you want to be, you want to go free-market."
