Here’s my problem with SCHIP

On January 14, 2009, in General, by Neil Stevens

If we’re truly going to have Big Brother watching everyone, with bleeding heart utopian programs leeching money from hard-working Americans to give it away to whoever asks, then where does that leave private charity?

When SCHIP inevitably makes medical care less affordable to more Americans, and people are hurt, while at the same time the coming tax hikes make the producers of society less well off, doesn’t the rational response to the cries of the hurt become a Dickensian “Don’t we have programs for that?”

The basic problem with socialist programs is that they are totalitarian, cutting off the natural urge to help people in one’s community and replacing it with the cold, progressive state. That scares me.
