The future of health care is AIG

Jerry Stratton, March 25, 2009

Take a look at the congressional clawback on AIG funds; congress wants to take back the earnings of people who promised to stay with a failing company rather than move to a safer job. Now imagine the same congress in charge of national health care. When we start spending hundreds of billions of dollars on everybody’s health care, what will happen when congress looks at the polls and sees that some people’s health care is polling poorly?

What’s going to get clawed back? What will the world be like when we’re all afraid of congress taking notice of what we’re doing with “the people’s money”?
