Quote of the Week

From commenter Brian Frederickson to this John Fund piece “When in Doubt, Attack Your Critics” at the Wall Street Journal:

You don’t have to be rabid, right-wing or an extremist to have a basic understanding of economics. Adding 46 million people to the ranks of the insured will drive up demand for healthcare and, thus, the price. Conversely, controlling costs (while trying to add to the number of insured) will require limiting access to care. An insurance program subsidized by the Treasury will drive private insurers out of business and force more people into the government plan. These facts are irrefutible, and the President can’t get upset when people call him out by stating the obvious.

That’s all you need to know, and if you relied on the news to tell you all this, you’d wait forever.

It’s just basic economic knowledge on how markets work. It has nothing to do with partisanship.
