Quote Of The Day — A Restatement

by Brad Warbiany

From QandO, in a full of QandO:

One thing to keep in mind as you listen to all of these proponents tell you that government can do health care better than the private sector – The private sector is a net producer of wealth. The government sector is a net consumer of wealth. That’s why the more of the economy a government takes over the less wealth is available within the economy.

Very good, but too simple. Restate:

The private sector offers services in trade for dollars to earn profit.
The government seizes money to impose services that indenture voters.

It’s not about production/consumption of wealth. It’s competition vs. compulsion. It’s about control.
