My colleague Charlie Cooke shows how easy it is to get free condoms by the handful in New York City. As he points out, these “free” condoms are, of course, paid for out of tax revenues. So, in effect, the free-condom program is a transfer of wealth from people who are not having sex to people who are. Shouldn’t it work the other way?
