Russell Roberts of Cafe Hayek has an excellent conversation with a socialist doctor who wants to confiscate pharmaceutical company profits to pay for government-provided universal healthcare.
Here's Russell's post over at Cafe Hayek and a direct link to the audio:
Is health care a right?
Is health care a right? I have no idea. What I do know is that treating it like a right can be hazardous to our health. Here's my debate on the issue with a doctor who thinks health care is a right and the government should provide it.
It's a great listen and Russell provides an excellent refutation of the good doctor's idiotic proposals.
I thought it was hilarious when the NPR moderator mentioned that her friends who've returned from a year in France or the UK remarked at how great things are (e.g. the kids get glasses every 6 months - for free!).
It's amazing how stupid the NPR moderator's friends are - and how easily she internalized and accepted such a ridiculous statement.
