Concerned About Government-Run Health Care? Read this Article!

We don’t normally call special attention to individual articles in The Insider—because we think they are all worth reading. But please do make time to read Michael Greve and Philip Wallach’s article “Who Will Tell the People? Medicaid Has Ruined Arizona’s Finances and It’s a Prelude for the Rest of the States.” As the title indicates, Greve and Wallach show how Medicaid has made it virtually impossible for state legislators to make sensible budget choices. And even as the program leads states to fiscal ruin, it creates additional demands for government-provided health care. Politicians understand all this, but none are talking about it. If you think government-run health care is the wrong way to go, then read Greve and Wallach’s article to understand just how daunting the political problem is.
