Michael Tanner of CATO notes that James W. Holsinger, President Bush’s nominee for Surgeon General, testified to Congress that he supports:
1. Universal health insurance;
2. Banning pharmaceutical advertising;
3. Banning the advertising of sugary cereals and other “junk food” on television;
4. Federal regulation of vending machines in schools; and
5. Increasing tobacco taxes as part of a campaign to “make America a tobacco-free nation.”
Couldn’t the Bush Administration have found someone who was a bit more dedicated to individual liberty?
