George Will vs Robert Reich So Easy A Caveman Can Do It
http://radioviceonline.com/ ^ | March 8, 2010 | Jim Vicevich

On This Week liberal stateist economist Robert Reich contends the reason we need health care (or is it health insurance?) reform is because the American people just don’t understand health insurance. That’s enough to set the normally calm George Will off. The battle lines are drawn when Will contends allowing insurance companies to compete across state lines will immediately bring down premiums, and then has the line of the morning. So easy a caveman can do it?

"So Easy A Caveman Can Do It"

I've heard Geico now has an even simpler method of buying insurance. In fact, they will soon be changing their popular slogan to: "So Easy Even a Dopey Liberal Can Do It" (joking of course, but not a bad idea)

SOME people might not understand health insurance,
but what about those of us who DO?

Just because someone craps their pants doesn’t mean we all should wear diapers.

By the way, is that a height challenged caveman to which they are referring?

I’ll see Will’s interstate competition suggestion and raise him tort reform, letting mutual insurance companies write health insurance, and letting people (both as individuals and business owners) form buying groups to get large-group rates.

All market-based solutions that will bring costs down, make coverage more affordable, and thereby get more people covered.

“Someone craps their pants and everyone has to wear diapers”

is one of the core tenets of “progressive” ideology.

Just because someone craps their pants doesn’t mean we all should wear diapers.

If the nanny nazis get their way we will all be wearing diapers and helmets and riding on the small bus. That is afterall what they were taught to think about their non-ivy league educated fellow citizens, was it not? We are merely mouth breathers to our betters.

Perhaps it is Robert Reich who "doesn't understand."

Technology has worked against the Progressives, who thought they had sufficiently "dumbed down" the citizenry, and that the time had arrived when they could just impose their agenda, take over the entire economy, and rule over "We, the People," despite Constitutional constraints.

Technology has allowed ordinary Americans to access information and ideas which enlighten their minds, despite the decades-long censorship of those ideas from their textbooks.

Yes, Americans do understand that this push is not about "health care." It is about expansion of power by those who ignore such warnings as this:

"Although all men are born free, and all nations might be so, yet too true it is, that slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant--they have been cheated; asleep--they have been surprised; divided--the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson? that because they people may betray themselves, they ought to give themselves up, blindfolded, to those who have an interest in betraying them? Rather conclude that the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it, as well as obey it. " - James Madison - Essay in the National Gazette, December 20, 1792.

Add to this letting us buy only the coverage we want and need. Various groups are always lobbying state legislatures to force insurance companies to cover their particular pet disease, condition, test, or treatment modality. Some of them, such as chiropractic and psychological counseling, can go on forever. Now if people choose that, fine, but don’t force others to pay higher premiums for that coverage.

Other things also - not everyone needs coverage for pregnancy, etc. Why does insurance have to be one size fits all?

As someone said, we need less health insurance and less government, not more.

After Obamacare crashes and burns, the slogan should be “So Easy Even Obama Can Do It”
