HCR: Maybe There Are ‘Two Americas’ After All

John Edwards liked to claim that there were ‘two Americas.’ With the passage of health care “reform” maybe he was right. There’s the America you and I have to live in, and there’s the America our elected officials who supposedly represent us live in (which apparently doesn’t include the 60% of us who were opposed to this bill).

The most appalling aspect (well, one of them anyway) of the whole HCR debacle is that Congress has just passed a bill which will impose new laws, taxes, fines, obligations, and penalties on ordinary citizens which they, of course, will not have to deal with at all. But we shouldn’t be surprised at the hyprocrisy. After all, leftists have long argued against privatization of government–oh, except when they find out that government run enterprise leads to spiraling debts, poor service, fewer choices, and higher cost, and inevitable taxpayer bailouts on something they actually care about.

What are we talking about? Why the Senate privatizing its restaurants of course. Turns out that the free market, and not government mandates, are good enough for our politicians. Just not for us.
