ACA "Good" Story of the Day

Also could be filed under "All Hail Taranto"

According to those so blinkered that as long as the sky hasn't fallen, the latest government program simply must be wonderful: that huge lines at the ACA Enrollment Center in Miami is a good thing. Liberals think "this good!" / Taranto thinks it looks like bread lines in Caracas.

Waiting in line to purchase necessities is a characteristic not of a prosperous free society but of command economies under repressive regimes. Closer to home, one doubts even the Transportation Security Administration would be so tone-deaf as to advertise long airport lines as an indication it's doing a great job.

Awesome, as always. Now back to wrestling with taxes!

Long lines to buy necessities are generally caused by government distortion of the supply. In the ACA "buy it or else" case, government distorted the demand.
