The Real Healthcare Problem

insurance1

The continuing thread throughout the Democrats’ healthcare speeches on the House floor is that the insurance companies are the bad guys, and they need to be cut down a notch or two.

Here’s what the Democrats are missing: the free market system is successful only when it’s allowed to function in its entirety, free from government intervention. When the government starts meddling in different aspects, it throws the whole process off-kilter.

Are there problems with the insurance companies? Absolutely, but those problems are not the fault of the free market. They are caused by the government’s refusal to allow it to function properly.

So now, the solution appears to be killing what remains of the free enterprise system instead of removing the bureaucratic choke-hold that prevents it from succeeding.

That’s Democratic wisdom for you.  Don’t you feel safe with them running the country?
