Leave it to government to force a marketplace into existence, where people are coerced into buying something many of them can’t afford to use, and which sellers still lose money selling.
And then leave it to government to blame free markets for the failure.
-Stephen Green (Instapundit)
Actually, its not Government that’s doing the blaming – it’s the Socialists / Progressives within Government doing blaming. They wanted to co-opt both the power of Government and the language (“marketplace”) to get a desired outcome. And now, by trying to blame their marketplace, their only solution to a bad situation THEY CAUSED, their solution is even more government.
A public option. Basically, creating the VA medical system for all of us.
