Maryland’s lawmakers have acted arbitrarily and unjustly in passing a law designed to force a single company–Wal-Mart–to increase its health benefits. The government has no place dictating to companies what health benefits they offer, period–let alone targeting a single scapegoat company for punishment.
This arbitrary exercise of power by Maryland’s lawless lawmakers against one of America’s best companies should be repudiated by everyone who believes in justice, rights, and the rule of law.

I completely agree. If employees don’t like Wal-Mart’s benefit program, they don’t have to work there. Companies should have the right to set their own employee benefit programs without government interference.
