Ayn Rand on Socialized Health Care

Upon discussing Atlas Shrugged with my father a few weeks ago, he spotted an editorial in the Providence Journal (the local Rhode Island paper slowly dying like the rest of the MSM) which spotlighted Rand’s book We the Living from 1936.  Well, the article said that a 1942 movie on the book exists and only recently on DVD format.  I scanned YouTube and found this clip on Rand’s view of the joys of socialized health care:

Looks like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?  And I’m sure it’s complete with the trademark dehumanized service, favoring those “in” with the state, and eventually only finding a respite in a private system outside the state’s apparatus.  Now imagine spending $829 billion on that kind of system and getting those kinds of results!  Sounds about right coming from this Congress.

Americans are ‘hands-on’ learners that frequently are incapable of learning from the mistakes of others. Europe and Canada’s systems routinely drive patients to the US for treatment because their socialized system doesn’t provide good care. Getting health care from the DMV will be hugely positive for those who now can get a medical appointment within a day or two of requesting it. Obama will at least be held accountable for that.

Just like electing Jimmy Carter – who turned out to be the worst presidential disaster of the century – the election of Obama will ultimately bring about a new Reagan Revolution. But since Obama is Carter on steroids, the next conservative will have his/her work cut out.
