I’m no huge fan of Glenn Beck for similar reasons to why I don’t really like Ann Coulter. Their approach to this whole dialog thing aside, they’ve got good points to be made. (I just don’t feel they make them very well.) This video appears in a post by Allahpundit over at Hot Air. It’s an interview with British MEP Daniel Hannan where he discusses the ramifications of passing a nationalized health care system over here. Hannan tells us it’s incomprehensible why a free people would ever choose this kind of action short of being forced to by a major war.
Bonus information about the UK’s National Health Service that I’ll bet you didn’t know:
Take particular note of Hannan’s point about what this bureaucracy has meant for democratic reform in the UK. With a bureaucracy that huge, it becomes impossible to reform it by a democratic process. Interesting clip.
