Quote Of The Day

From Walter Russell Mead on what he calls the Second Great Johnson Quagmire…the Medicare/Medicaid complex:

“Thanks to these programs, we have a health system that marries the greed of the private sector to the ineptitude of government…”

According to Mead, the First Great Johnson Quagmire is the well-known VietNam war; the Third Great Johnson Quagmire is urban policy—the War On Poverty which is the primary subject of his post.

Heckuva job Lyndon—and a wake up call to everyone about the known and unknown unintended consequences of statism and liberal social justice policy, i.e. Obamacare.
