Atlas Shrugged

When I read descriptions of the new healthcare plan I can't help thinking of Atlas Shrugged.  There are a lot of things that Ms. Rand got wrong.  But her descriptions of the socialist solutions was right on.

Bureaucracy and nepotism.  Government people giving away powers that they don't have the right or power to give.  The willful blindness to obvious problems.

It is clear that priority one is building a class of workers who are dependent on the system, so they will act in defense of the system and vote for their patrons.  Healthcare is obviously only a secondary consideration.  And fiscal responsibility is a rejected proposition.

This will end badly.
