It’s really about getting other people to buy you stuff

Carpe Diem points out the cost of insurance for a young person in Michigan.

It points out what’s been clear to thinking people all along:  Passing health care reform was always about using force to make one group of people buy something for another group of people.

If you choose between health insurance and a cell phone (much less an iPhone), that’s your doing.  Not mine.  I should not have to subsidize your cell phone, or your vacation… which is what these folks really want.

But no one would ever pass a law making me pay for cell phones or vacations.  Health care, on the other hand, well not paying for that is just mean.
