The Obamacare restaurant analogy

July 22, 2009

A phenomenally well-done video analogizing socialized healthcare to a government-run restaurant.

I kind of wish they would emphasize the public sector-private sector tidbit they throw in at the very end–about the end of competition (and thus, the incentives to keep prices low and quality high) if government assumes control. Regardless, I think the video does a pretty good job of tailoring the intellectual arguments against socialism to a situation that most people can relate to…waiting forever to get service at a restaurant.  Can’t wait to see Part 2!
