Cafe Hayek: Reality Is Not Optional

Prof. Don Boudreaux on health care:

Who cares what modern health care-delivery methods are called? The elemental problem is that more and more people feel entitled to vast quantities of high-quality health care paid for by someone else.

And politicians, ever lusting for office, are only too happy to conjure the ridiculous illusion that A will get top-flight service from B when C is forced by G to pay the bills.

As long as people and politicians continue to belief and foster the belief that high quality health care is a right, there will be a cry for the government to provide. Of course, if the government provides it, someone has to pay for it–the taxpayer.
