Since the invention of Medicare in 1966 healthcare has become big business, health care costs have risen astronomically, doctors have become rich, and it has broken the bank. It was much simpler and less expensive before Big Government and Big Healthcare.

Greg-Specialists were rich even in those days, but in those days we didn't run to a specialist for every little thing.

I'm scared.

I fear that even if the Supreme Court overrules most of Obamacare (or did already, by the time you read this), Republicans will join Democrats in restoring "good" parts of the law, like the requirement that insurance companies cover kids up to age 26 and every American with a pre-existing condition.

Those parts of Obamacare are popular. People like getting what they think is free stuff. But requiring coverage to age 26 makes policies cost more.

Even Bill O'Reilly lectures me that government should ban discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions. Most Americans agree with him. Who likes...
