Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

So Much Derp

So the idiot who beat Eric Cantor is back in the news.  He says providing people with subsidies to buy private health insurance is akin to totalitarianism.  Someone showed him that light map of the Korean peninsula where the North is dark and the South is light.  So he concluded that if we help subsidize people's insurance, we will wind up like North Korea - a dark and impoverished land bereft of hope.  We should be more like South Korea with its vibrant free market economy.

Of course, South Korea has a universal, single payer government run health care system, but since when has being notdumb ever stopped these yahoos.
