Sen. Johnson: Obama health law 'greatest assault on our freedom'

Describing the Supreme Court's oral arguments over the healthcare law, Johnson compared the country to a hostage suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, in which captives become loyal to their captors.

"So we're going to the Supreme Court, begging them please, please allow us this one last shred of freedom," he said in the Atlas Society interview. "Allow us the freedom to decide what product we're going to purchase or not purchase. And unfortunately for Americans, for our freedoms, we were denied that right."

The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the healthcare law's individual mandate is constitutional.
