For decades, political pundits and the mass media have bombarded the public with a drumbeat of misinformation on healthcare. By the power of constant repetition and with dissent suppressed, these two falsehoods have become commonly accepted wisdom:
1.Health care is a fundamental human right.
2.Washington will solve our healthcare crisis.
Health care MUST BE a right! After all, everyone says it, from policy wonks and mass media to Washingtonpoliticians and religious leaders, even Pope Francis!
Healthcare is, after all, a federal responsibility. If Washington wont fix healthcare, who will?
As long as these false facts form the basis of our policy discussion and planning, health care will be unavailable, and healthcare will be impossibly expensive.
Objective analysis of the above wisdom shows that a right to health care is immoral, and federal control of healthcare is unconstitutional.
