Welcome to Decadence, America!


The US Senate has chosen the Bismarckian road to decadence. Americans will be faced with rationing of medical technology, downgrading of care for the elderly, ever rising insurance premiums, health inflation and higher taxes.

Regulation costs money. The minute coercion steps into any market (and mandatory insurance is coercitive by nature), it sparks an exponential growth of controlers & bureaucrats who don't work for free.

Conversely, over regulated health care leads to a scarcity of nurses and physicians  - as Europeans are begining to realize. Doctors end up spending more time filling forms than writing prescriptions while patients queue for care!

American medicine long led the world in terms of innovation. This is  unfortunately doomed to change: irresponsible ideologues  have voted mediocrity into  US health care.

Voting bad lawmakers out of office will not necessarily root out mandates from health care. Politicians from all horizons can live with them. For ordinary citizens, of course, it's another matter.

The battle however is not lost! Civil disobedience, in particular when constitutional principles are at stake, shows the way citizens may have to combat iaws that infringe their fundamental liberties ...
