I can’t argue with Will on this. We should be ashamed of ourselves. We have allowed profligate spending. We borrow to pay our current bills. We elect people who year after year expand government and who pass laws which reduce our liberty and fundamentally our very humanity. It is we who have allowed this to happen.
It is interesting to me how wedded some people are to the idea that Obamacare is not a crony capitalist disaster. I understand why. It is the president’s signature piece of legislation. It has long been the dream of many in this country to implement nationalized healthcare. To acknowledge that what at first appeared to be an important political victory is likely anything but, is a hard pill to swallow.
If Obamacare fails it also means that Obama fails historically, and that is also very difficult.
