When You Make Bad Choices, You Have to Pay the Consequences! by American Elephant

We have a country mired in financial crisis, with out-of-control spending, escalating national debt and escalating deficits.  On the international scene, we are fighting one war and winding down a second one — trying to protect a fledgling democracy  as it proudly holds free elections.

We have had a further terrorist attack on this country, fortunately unsuccessful.  The country that funds, trains, and foments almost all of the Islamist terrorism in the world is actively seeking nuclear weapons.

So what has our president chosen as the most important question to be addressed in his first year?  Reforming the health care system that is the envy of the world, by convincing people that poor Americans who are lacking health insurance are dying in the streets, the victims of voracious insurance companies.  People in Europe and Canada actually believe this blatant nonsense.

“Repeal and Replace” is the rallying cry.

I am convinced that economics will accomplish what neither politics nor common sense has been able to reach in the vanity and conceit of the political class.  Despite the gloating and huzzahs of the Democrats, there is more to reforming health care than just saying “Make it so!” In spite of all the speeches, economic reality is going to rear its ferocious head.  ObamaCare has always carried the seeds of its own destruction.  It’s not going to be pretty.
