Useful Links for July 2nd through August 24th

  • Joel Salatin Testimony – April 17, 2008 – House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
  • John Mackey: The Whole Foods Alternative to ObamaCare – WSJ.com – Rather than increase government spending and control, we need to address the root causes of poor health. This begins with the realization that every American adult is responsible for his or her own health.
  • Greg Mankiw’s Blog: CBO and I agree
  • Op-Ed Columnist – Something for Nothing – NYTimes.com – We’ve built an entire health care system (maybe an entire government) on the illusion of something for nothing. Instead of tackling that basic logic, we’ve got a reform process that is trying to evade it.

    This would be bad enough in normal times. But the country is already careening toward fiscal ruin. We’ve already passed a nearly $800 billion stimulus package. The public debt is already projected to double over the next 10 years.

    Health care reform is important, but it is not worth bankrupting the country over. If this process goes as it has been going — with grand rhetoric and superficial cost containment — then we will be far better off killing this effort and starting over in a few years. Maybe then there will be leaders willing to look at the options staring them in the face.
