    So the government isn't involved in Obamacare at all?

    In the care, no. Other than to improve insurance standards so more get care, no it isn't.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The trick, as many are discovering, is not to invest in the United States. That's why many companies are moving overseas or only hiring part time help. It's exceedingly important that the American people elect some responsible adults as soon as possible.

    The case in question has to do with the government telling doctors how to provide their service. It has nothing to do with insurance.

    You know they have been doing this for decades, and even with tax cuts. If you look at it, you will know nothing republicans complain about are driving these moves.

    Hardly. Not in the way we are discussing.

    Economic freedom in America is an absolute joke. I just found out that if i want to produce a new product I need to get the approval of the federal government first. I didn't even sell one unit of the product yet and the government is already telling me what to do.

    This post, right here, is a perfect demonstration of how ridiculous libertarianism really gets.

    I, the pilot or aircraft operator, have the power to place your life in mortal danger in order to save myself a few bucks. You, the passenger, have virtually no way to assess that risk. You have no basis of knowledge whatsoever that allows you to determine whether or not the risk I am putting you in is worth the $20 you save on the ticket. Because you don't understand how planes fly in the first place, let alone the skill, planning, maintenance, and supervision required to do so safely.

    You. Are. Not. An. Informed. Consumer.

    How many times have you heard people complain about delays, stating they "sat on the runway" for X amount of time. Guess what? They didn't sit on a runway. They sat somewhere else. A person who can't even name the various strips of pavement they sit on is supposed assess the value of my flying skill? They're supposed to determine whether or not proper maintenance has been completed on my aircraft? How? Going to inspect the plane yourself, are you? How about just looking at the paperwork yourself? Would you even know what to look for? Wait, in libertopia I'm not required to even have paperwork showing maintenance records, let alone show it to those ****ing customers.

    In your world, the company has the right to literally kill you in the name of saving money. I'm sure the next generation will sufficiently punish the company. Like happened with ValuJet, right? Nasty accident caused by shoddy procedures. The market didn't let them continue to operOH WAIT.

    That seems a bit strange since it deals with doctors and patients, not the insurance company.
