Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “health care and socialism” edition

From the American Enterprise Institute:

Ironically, many of the problems in our current healthcare system that lead to demands for public policy fixes—the underpayment of primary care providers, overpayment for certain specialty procedures, excessive payments for medical supplies—actually originate in government-run health programs. Expecting things to get better by expanding the reach of government in medicine appears to be a triumph of hope over experience.

How odd!  I mean, the government is so efficient with what it runs (Post Office, the VA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Social Security, Medicare), so why shouldn’t we allow the feds to replicate the same level of success they’ve had in the aforementioned programs and agencies with respect to our health care system?

  1. Hey, leave out the post office. I’ve always been impressed…and it’s been a while since they hired sociopaths.
