Democrats Confront Vexing Politics Over the Health Care Law – NYTimes.com

Many of those helped by the health care law — notably young people and minorities — are the least likely to cast votes that could preserve it, even though millions have gained health insurance and millions more will benefit from some of its popular provisions.

Yes, young people have been helped immeasurably by being forced to buy expensive insurance for things they neither want, need, or in many cases can never use (pregnancy benefits for men, for instance), just so the money they kick in can instead be spent on paying the insurance costs of the sick and elderly.

Such a deal.  It almost makes the military draft look good.

Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Kind of a tough sell, when they lie to you about…well, pert’ damn near everything, in a new form of “tax law” (per: The People In The Long Black Robes), force you to choose between paying for something you don’t want or need or pay the “tax” annually instead, expose your personal information to potential identity thievery if you DO “sign up” – then insist upon yammering and hammering at you about what a grand job they’re doing for you, here, and aren’t you just all-kinds-of-fortunate-and-properly-grateful to them for it?

    Hey, at this point, a simple, ordinary mugging, beating and rape might actually be somewhat of a relief by contrast…
