Christian Bourge, the Disenchanted Journo, has a good taking apart of White House claims – in this case by Michelle – of a free preventive care lunch. The White House has tried to sell health reform as cost-free on so many levels. Whether one thinks of health reform as good or not, market forces still apply. There are a finite number of health care service providers. Prices rise when there’s more demand for a product. If one product is made free, prices will rise on other products given by the same providers. And if prices are not allowed to rise, the products will be RATIONED.
