The U.S. House of Presumptuous Meddlers – John Stossel gets it right


Beside the fact that women think he’s just dreamy, John Stossel gets it right again. If the government can’t handle the smallest things, how will it handle a huge government takeover of our healthcare industry? The politicians know that this bill does nothing to improve the healthcare system. NOTHING. All it accomplishes is an increase in power for the Federal Government. The midnight passage of PelosiCare had the slimmest of margins. If only three out of the 435 brilliant people in the house voted against it, the bill would be dead. Three votes people. Don’t give up; we’re closer than you think.

As an American, I am embarrassed that the U.S. House of Representatives has 220 members who actually believe the government can successfully centrally plan the medical and insurance industries.

I’m embarrassed that my representatives think that government can subsidize the consumption of medical care without increasing the budget deficit or interfering with free choice.

It’s a triumph of mindless wishful thinking over logic and experience.

The 1,990-page bill is breathtaking in its bone-headed audacity. The notion that a small group of politicians can know enough to design something so complex and so personal is astounding. That they were advised by “experts” means nothing since no one is expert enough to do that. There are too many tradeoffs faced by unique individuals with infinitely varying needs.
