It is Victor Davis Hanson's opinion that the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010" is misnamed. In his Oct. 27 column, he lists numerous things that are wrong about the new law, although many features of the new law have not been implemented.
The Fresno Bee identifies Mr. Hanson as a "classicist." I researched the term and discovered that a classicist "is someone whose creative work shows sensitivity and imagination." A classicist is also "someone who uses restraint and balance in his pronouncements."
Mr. Hanson is a mouthpiece for the conservative point of view. That's fine, all views should be heard, and Mr. Hanson is very articulate. However, he does not use either restraint or balance when he presents his opinions. In his Fresno Bee columns, he is never sensitive to another point of view. His consistently conservative views on every subject shows a lack of imagination.
Victor Davis Hanson thinks some laws are misnamed. I think it is very possible that Mr. Hanson is no "classicist," and that he himself is misnamed.
