We want less government – in all things. This is not a moment-to-moment, transient concept. This is an overarching, timeless desire. We are not short-sighted in this pursuit.

Obamacare’s official legislative name was, of course, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” Washington, D.C. is very good at naming things. DC remains very terrible at doing things. Patients haven’t been protected by the law – they’ve been assaulted by it. And affordability was exterminated at the moment of enactment. All of the Obamacare…
