Govern't healthcare as unfair as having a ref who plays for one of the teams.

On NPR last night Heritage Foundation Vice President Stuart Butler advocates a restructured system based on consumer choice. Counter point was Pulitzer- and Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman who "argues that free markets alone can't fix the health care system."

Butler, (who is ironcally British and likes the healthcare he gets), really crystalized the most significant argument against having a government healthcare plan: if you're playing a ball game and the referee works for one of the teams -- the game is inherently unfair and will result in that team having major advantages.

  1. To put it in sports terms, Great Catch. And a really good analogy.
