So how are your friends and family making out with their health care premiums and coverage? If the premiums haven't increased, it's likely because they are subsidized at the expense of some one else. Better hope that everyone else's money lasts forever.
Think the political class is actually on the same health care system as the rest of us? Are you REALLY going to argue that? All of these wonderful "free" benefits are too awesome to fail... Because wealth distribution always continues to be every bit as strong after the ponzi scheme catches up a couple of generations later... Right?
This has played out so many times and continues to play out now around the world. We aren't the exception. The US is not too big too fail. Like people have done and continue to do throughout the annals of history, we'll deny that the ship is sinking until our feet are wet... And then we'll blame everyone but ourselves for allowing it to happen.
