Seahawks analogy flawed

Government shutdown more than a game

John Ariel Murphy makes a clever, but flawed play to draw an analogy between the Seahawks’ loss to the Colts and the Affordable Care Act mis-legislation. [“By same logic, overturn Seahawks’ loss to Colts,” opinion, Oct. 10].

Football is a game. Our freedoms and liberties are for real. You know what you have when an NFL game ends. The NFL’s bureaucrats don’t continue to twist and turn the results and rules after the end of the game. The fans in the bleacher seats aren’t penalized with a tax after the game. And the luxury-box fans don’t get a reprieve.
