Heath Insurace.

Let's have a health insurance rant.

We are all bitching about the Affordable Care Act (I refuse to call it Obamacare because he showed absolutely no leadership in how it was formed). How it is such a train wreck and what not. It IS a train wreck for a number of reasons, the main one is Congress made the stupid attempt to fix all the problems in one bill. But since that is how Congress works, we really should be surprised.

Health care is expensive. There is a lot of technology keeping us alive longer than nature intended (which is a argument for another day). But it is picture perfect example of the Peter Principle at work, except we replace time with money. All programs grow up to the level of resources provided. With A.C.A., it is assumed the resources are unlimited and that those who don't have the resources should have the same access as those who do. It is the only moral and ethical decision.

But I'm not arguing morals. What I am arguing is this misguided program has made the resource allocation problem situation worse. 

Get rid of it

The sooner the better.
