Liberals have been telling us, for years, that they wanted Single-Payer Government-Controlled Health Care. Why they would think that this is a good thing is completely beyond me. But then Liberals have never been particularly known to pay attention to evidence.
They believe in Big Government, which proves my contention that they don’t pay attention to evidence. So I guess it follows that they would assume that government would do a better job of health care than all those medical people. I guess when they look at Britain’s National Health Service, they only see people going to the doctor and not having to pay. Is that what they so admire? Or is it just the sheer power that they want so much?
We have government-run, single-payer health care in many countries, and it simply does not work. The systems are all going broke. England has been the longest participant, and bears the closest watching. Unsurprisingly, the bureaucracy of NHS is far larger than the number of people who actually do medicine. Liberals always look at what they hope it will be. Reality, on the other hand, is not so favorable. There are always unintended consequences, and with liberals, they’re usually pretty major.
