Mitt Romney supporter made a surprising admission Wednesday in support of the GOP candidate - that something is only a "mass triumph" of "free market principles" when it is undertaken by Republican. When a Democrat does the same exact thing it becomes "socialism."
If only the Democrats had decided to socialize the food industry or housing, Romneycare would probably still be viewed as a massive triumph for conservative free-market principles -- as it was at the time...
Until Obamacare, mandatory private health insurance was considered the free-market alternative to the Democrats' piecemeal socialization of the entire medical industry.
Interesting. So by that logic Coulter should be supporting Obamacare, right?
Basically Coulter argues that states can do whatever the hell they like while the federal government can sit back and do nothing. I think this was tested around 150 years ago in a thing called The Civil War...ReplyDelete
