All get worse when government “helps.”
Doesn’t the worst of government housing (Cabrini Green) kinda resemble the worst of government schools?
This might be a sign of the worst of government health care.
If you want to see the inevitable result of government attempts to “help”, look no further than the nearest Indian reservation.
Old Indian saying: briefcase man speak with forked tongue.
…I’m from the government, and I’m here to take your money, regulate how you can spend the money you have left and tell you how to raise your kids, drive your car, wear your hair, and how to cook your burgers…
It’s also worth noting that all three as costs have risen faster than the usual claimed inflation rate for decades. There’s some natural justification for the increase in cost (such as medical care providing more value than it used to), but the article does a good job of listing government contributions to that cost increase. I think the bottom line is that if you cut supply and encourage demand, you increase the price of the good or service being provided. The above services are classic examples where government has done both.
