Today, Americans who Love Freedom lost a battle against the Welfare State. In a historical decision, the Supreme Court decided to support Obamacare and to extend the devastating track of health care regulations in The United States of America.
The effects of Obamacare will represent higher costs, less competition, less innovation, more bureacracy, and decreased quality. and in the long run, the result will be the complete destruction of American health care, as the system’s problems are inevitably blamed on our ‘private’ health care system and a fully socialized ‘single payer’ medicine is offered up as the only cure as explained, Yaron Brook, the Director of the Ayn Rand Center.
