On Obamacare

Intervention begets intervention. Obamacare is not the end all of government interference in health-care. It can’t be, and it wasn’t designed to be. Single payer health-care is and always was the ultimate goal. But even that won’t be the end all of government interference in health-care. Again, intervention, the violent interference by individuals calling themselves “government” in the peaceful trade of market participants, begets intervention. Believing they are fixing a problem, they will create two or three more, which will likewise need fixing. It will be never-ending interventions so long as people believe that the government has the ability and know-how to fix anything. And that’s today’s two cents.
