Which just goes to prove PJ O'Rourke's point: If you think things are expensive now, just wait until the government makes it free, then it'll be really expensive. I'm paraphrasing but you get the point. And Medicare is an excellent example. Instead of security for senior medical costs, they actually have to pay more now, after paying for the safety all their lives. They've lost both their safety and their liberty. And one day, hopefully, we'll all be old, and stuck with it (unless Congress acts or the nation falls).
