Do It Yourself Blog Post

Off to an appointment, so you'll have to do this blog post yourself:

Title: Nicholas Kristof, Obamacare, and the Broken Window Fallacy

Don't forget to hat-tip: Professor Reynolds...

UPDATE: If you don't have time, Michelle Malkin (jk links to Michelle Malkin -- mark the date!) does a great job, awarding Kristof the prize for "Quite possibly the crappiest NYTimes column for Obamacare ever."

Bainbridge gets points for the Bastiat reference, but what Malkin grabs is that the object of pity in this ObamaCare paean already qualifies for government healthcare, but (don't laugh, this gentleman is truly suffering) he cannot secure the services of a physician because the reimbursement rates are too low!

"Bastiat: He was one of those Ayn Rand disciples, wasn't he! She was an extremist nutjob and he is too!"

The preceding was a pre-enactment of a relativist's "counter-argument."

As for me (and Rand, and Heinlein): TANSTAAFL.
