Reform?

in Health Care Politics

The following is overtly political. But more importantly it is philosophical. When I read it, it clarified some of what I feel as it relates to the health care reform and government in general. As they say read the while thing.

But it isn’t the “reform” part of the Democrats’ health care bill (if they ever agree on one) that strikes me as most perverse. It’s calling this voluminous monstrosity a bill. Can you have a bill, a single law, that is almost 3,000 pages long?…

…┬áThe whole point is to empower government officials, usually unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats, to bless or curse your petitions as they see fit, guided, of course, by their expertness in a law so vast, so intricate, and so capricious that it could justify a hundred different outcomes in the same case. Faster than one might think, a government of equal laws turns into a regime of arbitrary privileges.
