Hospital Profits Soar As Obamacare Creates More “Paying” Patients (You paid for them)

I was listening to a triad of wonks on NPR’s The Dianne Rehm Show last week discussing “Net neutrality.” One of the guests asserted that it was a given that business always hates “regulations.” I laughed to myself in the car. This person does politics for a living? And no one challenged her on this. (These are supposed to be smart inside the Beltway folks.)

What an ignorant statement.

Report from The Progressive Farmer: Obamacare inflicting serious pain on small time farms

Most farming in this country is done by massive agribusiness conglomerates. But there are still a few small farmers out there. There may be fewer however once Obamacare really takes hold.

We are bound by an idea not geography or ancestry. America is indeed exceptional in that regard.

George Will: Government for the strongest

We cannot have an economy in which billionaire crony capitalists bestow largess through the state to the unwashed. We need the broad based economic growth, opportunity, and dynamism that only comes in a freer more liberalized economy.

Though the intentions of most progressives are probably “good” the culture of regulation and unnecessary complexity they have instituted over the last few decades has only served to further stratify the country and to reduce social mobility.

The economy is running through bureaucratic wet concrete. The ridiculous tax code, the regs, the government “fees” everywhere, Obamacare, etc. The only people who can negotiate this concrete effectively are the very rich. The rest of us are mired, and the concrete is hardening.
