You're Still Here?
Onward to Colorado Springs!
Megan McArdle gives us two posts that depend on her erroneous belief that the nation does not want health insurance reform. She can keep this up forever--why not say anything and everything when you can ignore facts and use hypotheticals you created to "prove" your opinion is factual?
We are going to hear a lot more about the eradication of Social Security and Medicare. Our elite might even be able to pull it off this time, telling various tea-baggers, libertarians, and newly poor that the government can't do anything right. It will be a lie, because lies are the only way they will be able to defend the removal of any and all social safety nets. And McArdle will cheer our elite on the entire way, despite the fact that her Masters of the Universe drove the economy into a ditch.
All it will take is a population that is both ignorant and refuses to think. And I wouldn't bet against those odds.
