<<<The marketplace, for all its shortcomings, is so vastly superior to allocating resources than gov't fiat that I seriously question the sanity of anyone who denies the experiences of gov't run anything over the centuries.

This bill takes us in the opposite direction of where we need to go: more marketplace, less politicians.>>>

So let's start with the biggest government program of all- the military. We've all seen how poorly they perform (toppling Saddam Hussein, subtracting a couple of pirates from the rolls, some of the best trauma medicine around, etc.) Let's get that marketplace involved; oh, we've tired some of that with Blackwater, etc.

While we're questioning sanity, how about the sanity of a former Fed Chairman and Ayn Rand acolyte who now says his fundamental assumptions were wrong. We followed his (and others') advice on the wonders of markets. One need only read the appropriate boards on TMF to see the great things it bought us over the last couple of years.
