Would Obama Care Kill Medical Innovation?

Posted by on Nov 23 2009 | Health Care, Media, PPC

Our recent trip to Canada in search of real people with real stories of Canada’s version of Obama Care inspired Reason Magazine. So much so, this new Reason.tv video on Obama Care gives a special thanks shout out to us. It shows that the profit motive is the main reason we (and the rest of the world) enjoy the medical innovation that saves so many lives. Cancer drugs, CT scans, MRI’s, etc are all a result of that evil word “profit.” Take a few minutes and watch this great video, and pay extra special attention to the Independence Institute shout out at the end.

  1. I would like to know if those protesters are personally charitable, that is, if they voluntarily give personal time and money to charitable causes. Arthur Brook’s demographic analysis indicates they likely lack personal generosity. Through human history the healthy have always taken care of the sick — voluntarily. The pharmaceutical industry is voluntary. What are these people asking for? “Use force to make others take care of me”? Logically one might round them up at gunpoint and force them to work for free taking care of the sick — pity the sick who would be at their mercy. Health care has to do with caring, with generosity. The people I know in the medical business usually do care, are often personally generous and often are innovative. You cannot force that. Stinginess about others’ earned profits indicates a stinginess about life itself; such people innovate ways to produce misery.
