In response to Burr Deming's
Republicans Can Still Eliminate the Obamacare Mandate
So Obamacare will be the law. People, real people, will be alive who would otherwise die for lack of proper treatment. Families who would have been forced into poverty will remain whole.
- Burr Deming, June 29, 2012
Wow! For a moment I thought David Axelrod had written a guest post.
When one adds 30 million more people to the health care roles and then provides HUGE disincentives to current doctors and future would-be doctors, you tend to get a whole lot more of a demand with a drastically shrinking supply of medical service providers.
Basic economics tells us that this would tend to cause prices for EVERYBODY to go up and precious resources to be rationed by appointed bureaucratic death panels (oops, I mean "end of life counselors")as they see fit.
In the end, just the opposite of what we all wanted will be the results. We will see more people die, longer waiting times for services, and skyrocketing medical costs.
There is a reason why the wealthy citizens living in countries with socialized medicine come to the United States for their treatment. I wonder where rich Canadians will go for treatment now that Obamacare has been deemed "constitutional" in the most cynical of ways?
In addition to his valiant attempts to enlighten Burr on the virtues of conservatism, T. Paine writes for his own site, where the Constitution is regarded without cynicism.
