Less Government, Not More

This video on health care, produced by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity, features Eline van den Broek, founder of the European Independent Institute. She does a nice job of explaining, in simple terms, why the United States should not copy Europe’s mistakes, and why the key to true health care reform is less government, not more.

I’m particularly fond of Ms. van den Broek’s Tuesday Weld-like wink at the conclusion of the video. Nothing like a camera-ready policy wonk.

But all kidding aside, Obamacare, as defined in the humongous 2,000 page bill that no one has read, that is written in impenetrable legalese, that is a minefield of unintended consequences, and sections of which are probably unconstitutional—the government will fine you if you do not buy health insurance—is, as The Wall Street Journal writes, The Worst Bill Ever.

H/T Powerline.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Obamacare proponents always cite how Europe spends less of their GDP on health care than the U.S. with better or similar results.
    So their answer is for the government to bring millions more into the system while not increasing the supply of medical providers. Are these politicians so clueless about basic economics? Yeah, dumb question.
    Can we at least get a copy of the 2,000 page bill to heat our homes? It would be the only good result we can expect from this monstrosity.
