I agree with Thomas Sowell’s latest column, High Risk, Low Yield, regarding recent Republican tactics. Especially this part:
The world is full of things that ought to be done but cannot in fact be done.
The time, effort and credibility that Republicans are investing in trying to defund ObamaCare is a high risk, low yield investment.
If I were Republican politician, I might say:
America, I hope Obamacare works out for you. But, if it doesn’t, remember, this is your own doing.
Soon, you may discover that Obamacare increases your health care costs and reduces quality and availability.
You may realize that you have less choice about health care than you did before.
You may find government bureaucrats have taken a keen interest in your personal health habits, to the extent you may feel violated and they may deem you not fit to receive priority care.
If you are bothered by any of that, you should consider who you voted for and why. If you want different results, perhaps you should think about voting differently and holding some frank discussions at the dinner table to help convince others you know to do the same.
