Opinion: Winning the Future With Health Care Reform

Sec. Kathleen Sebelius
Special to AOL News
My Response:

However easy it would be (and it would be easy), it would be a waste of time refute point by point the complete and utter falsehoods outlined in this commentary. I do not know whether Ms. Sebelius really believes government can reduce the cost of healthcare or whether she is simply part of a larger conspiracy. Regardless the outcome in the same. A nation of citizens forced under threat off imprisonment to participate in a government run healthcare system which will require rationing of healthcare.

Instead, I'd like to make two simple statements:

1) The unintended consequences of laws and regulations are proportional to the size of the bill. At 2400+ pages we (as San Fran Nan said) to pass the bill to find out what is in it. We are finding out he easy stuff now, but the real awful parts are still years in the future... Just and the new "Food Safety and Modernization Act" will make food more expensive (with little or no effect on food safety), the Obamacare will make healthcare more expensive with little or no effect on quality of life.

2) Look at anything government controls and show me where costs are contracting. Costs of everything from postage, to Amtrak, to college tuition, to you name it increases dramatically as government’s role increases. Now that Obama has completely taken over student loans, the cost of colleges will increase at a rate beyond anything any of those "smartest people in the room" people predicted.

You can call me a prophet when it happens, but it only takes a keen sense of the obvious to figure it out.
