The Entitlement State

…has begun to eat its own:

The biggest federally funded program (Medicaid) is competing directly with the next-biggest set of programs (education). State politicians are now squeezed between the two most voracious (and unionized) constituencies in American politics: the education blob, and the health care/AARP/provider complex. They will want a way out; otherwise, they’re toast. And the only way out is interposition to Obamacare.

When something can’t go on, at some point, it doesn’t.

One thought on “The Entitlement State”

  1. Nonpositive sum games are a classic result of redistribution schemes. It’ll become desperate people fighting over a shrinking pie unless we change things.
