"The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants" - Albert Camus

"Please don't put your faith in market forces. It's a popular idea: that Adam Smith's invisible hand would do a better job of designing care than leaders with plans can. I find little evidence that market forces relying on consumers choosing among an array of products, with competitors fighting it out, leads to the healthcare system you want and need. In the U.S., competition is a major reason for our duplicative, supply driven, fragmented care system."

--Dr. Donald Berwick, nominated by Barack Obama to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), who idolizes Britain's socialized National Health System (NHS).


In case Dr. Berwick hasn't seen the reports on the NHS since the publication of his article, it's deep in debt and delivering substandard service, with new critical reports published almost daily about its state of disgrace causing untold deaths and unnecessary suffering. Adam Smith's invisible hand gave the U.S. the best medical care in the world. The people know this, which is why the vast majority reject ObamaCare, the American NHS wannabe.
