Ayn Rand Could Tell Us What Comes Next

Doctors are resisting participating in Obamacare. Shocking, I know, but some doctors are only seeing paying patients, some are retiring early, and many are upset with the limited compensation that the system provides them for their services.

The solution is obvious. Doctors will be forced to participate. Because if health care is a right, then it must be provided. Those who provide it may not be allowed to quit, refuse, expect reasonable compensation, or hinder the system in any way. It would be unpatriotic. It would violate the rights of the patients.

The only distinction between freedom and slavery is this: In the former state, a man is governed by the laws to which he has given his consent; in the latter, he is governed by the will of another.
— Alexander Hamilton

In any case, click here and watch the numbers for a few seconds. Don’t just look at the top, look at the bottom at the section on unfunded liabilities. That $126 Trillion? That’s money promised out we don’t have either.
