Obamas framgångar

Också ur Metros sista nummer inför sommaren:
Angående Usama bin Ladins död, Radley Balko:

Yes, bin Laden the man is dead. But he achieved all he set out to achieve, and a hell of a lot more. He forever changed who we are as a country, and for the worse. Mostly because we let him. That isn’t something a special ops team can fix.

Angående räddningen av bilfabrikerna, Michael Rizzo:

We’ve destroyed a billion and a half dollars worth of valuable cars for the sake of stimulus that never really happened. We made the lives of poor used car buyers more difficult and expensive. We’ve spent over 6 times as much to reduce carbon costs as the carbon is costing society in the first place. And people like me who raise eyebrows over such absolute nonsense are painted as the nutty, man-hating, ideologues.

Och angående sjukvårdsreformen, förbluffande ojämne Stefan Molyneux:


Molyneuxs sammanfattning:

Fact 1: There Is No Law in the US Anymore
Fact 2: Obamacare Is an Admission That All Previous Government Healthcare Programs Have Failed
Fact 3: Cost of Already Doubled from Initial Estimates
Fact 4: 70%+ of Healthcare Issues Results from Individual Choice
Fact 5: The Inability to Discriminate on Pre-Existing Conditions is an Essential Driver of Healthcare Costs
Fact 6: The Fines for Noncompliance Are Destined to Rise Enormously

Angående sjukvårdsreformen kan det också vara intressant att lyssna på Milton Friedman i de klipp från 1978 som Mark Perry bäddat in på temat.
