Reading an article on Yahoo.com this afternoon moved me to push back just a little. The following liberal apologetic comes from the New York Times.
Mr. Frank touts Swedish efficiency. So, I must ask, how has Sweden successfully mastered state socialism and remained ‘efficient’? That New York Times writer Is obviously a cheerleader for the wrong team.
Let’s put common sense to work.
When looking to have things done to my car, I ask around for references. I have a choice about who works on my car.
When it was time for cataract surgery, I wanted the best, so I asked around for references and got a great eye doctor. This has been my custom whether car repair, grass cutting or suppliers for my business – I want the best and a competitive marketplace affords me these opportunities. All my medical service providers came to me through research.
Do you understand where I’m going with this idea? Right into the free marketplace. Competition is key to quality.
I suggest you look beyond Obama’s cheering squad at the NYT. Learn from real people who have “been there, done that and got the tee shirt”.
‘Free’ increases demand for services, ever growing waiting lists, etc.
Citing Swedish life expectancy is a invalid parameter. Life expectancy has many contributors, including genetics and geography.
No nation on earth has a population as diverse as ours.
Disregard propaganda in favor of common sense. Free market principles trump socialism every time.
Tell your congressional delegation to repeal ObamaCare.
