“The government is paying for the medical services so they have the right to dictate details of those services,” said Justice Kagan today. If you hear this and still think that universal healthcare is a great idea, then I refer you back to my post about calcified brains.
“But would you rather an insurance company did the dictating?”
Yes, you absolute child. Of course, I would. An insurance company wants to make a profit. Its motives are economic, not political or ideological. It’s a catcher of coins, not souls. It might very well stiff you. But it has no power or interest to unperson, jail or torture you for thought crimes.
I’ll take my chances with the insurance company any time.
