Unfathomable Mindset

Kurt Bouwhuis, Mackinac Center Intern

Here is a letter Don Boudreaux recently sent to the Baltimore Sun:



24 November 2009

Editor, Baltimore Sun

Dear Editor:

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.
