Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is obviously on the increasingly crowded Democratic bandwagon to put the government in charge of health care.
Well, if you socialize medicine, a lot of people are going to be “sick and tired” quite often as the incompetence, petty tyranny, and rationing of services that will characterize a government-run system kicks in.
What’s interesting to me here is what she betrays in her statement about health care, which is a general antipathy toward capitalism. Believe me, it’s health care first, and then we’ll see what else we can nationalize. Look at this statement:
The problem with the free market is that the free market needs to make a profit. And there is no profit in doing the right thing.
That’s a very hostile statement with respect to the system of economics that has provided our country with its wealth and supported its freedom. The free market is evil, she believes. Capitalists don’t do the right thing.
Georgians are very close to putting a person with such views in charge of their state. They will soon regret it.
