The enemies of capitalism indicted the society of liberty; they distorted the reality of capitalism and its brilliant triumphs in freeing man from poverty; and they imbedded in the minds of many the conception of political entitlements that serve the power ends of political paternalists and which requires the plundering of the peaceful and productive members of society.
Laura Hillier did not die because the bone marrow for her transplant was unavailable. She died because hospital beds where the transplant could be done were unavailable.
Instead of debating a free market for medicine versus socialism, we’re reduced to watching Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders fight over Obamacare versus socialism.
If Republicans really opposed socialism in principle, they’d be willing to take on or at least question the sacred cow of Medicare.
We must no longer allow American citizens to die of government bureaucracy.
So why the socialism, Donald, when it comes to medical care?
The only remedy for Obamacare must be a legislative remedy, which is why we have elections.
Independence Day is our most endangered holiday. We should celebrate it while we still can. The entire concept of independence — of autonomous citizens making their own choices in the pursuit of their own happiness — is under attack. The American war for independence...
American medical care is still the best. But it will not remain the best if we do not fully restore it now and fight to keep it free from ill treatment caused by government.
In a free market, medical practitioners and medical companies earn more money if they make their patients and customers happy and keep them healthy. That’s the best incentive. I trust that competition more than I’ll ever trust the activists who want to shut it down.

When the FDA calls a news conference to announce approval of a drug, somebody should ask the official how many Americans died from the drug’s not being approved the previous year.
How will Americans escape as Obamacare reduces all care to the response standards of the VA system?

“I have often wondered at the smugness with which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind — yet what is it they expect to depend on when they lie on an operating table under my hands?”
Individualism must be the basis for the freedom to practice our values–religious or otherwise.
Obamacare will harm us on a broader scale, as the underlying nature of the health law’s provisions, and the tactics used to implement them, affect all areas of public and business policy.
Individual liberty, freedom and private property — including the most precious right of free speech – are not frozen in place forever. Government will always test its limits and watch how we respond.
