Here is a letter Don Boudreaux recently sent to the Baltimore Sun:
24 November 2009
Editor, Baltimore Sun
You are right to warn against politics infecting health-care decisions (“Medicine trumps politics,” Nov. 24).
But you are also unreasonable to do so. Yours is among the most strident voices in support of Obamacare. To demand more government-enforced and financed health-care arrangements AND to decry the politics that arises in response to this government intervention is like demanding government-enforced and financed free love AND decrying the unwanted pregnancies and STDs that would arise in response.
