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.
Ever wonder why European nations have such high tax rates? Check out their socialized healthcare expenditures.
