Rep. Paul Ryan on Health-Care and Progressivism

Congressman Paul Ryan is one of the most knowledgeable and influential Republicans serving in the House or Senate today.  He has done the hard work of researching and writing a roadmap to avoid fiscal calamity, which is arguably the most pressing challenge the nation will face this decade.  And, last year, he was one of the four original authors of The Patients’ Choice Act, which remains the clearest articulation of the market-based alternative to a government-takeover of American health-care.

In short, when Cong. Ryan speaks, people should listen.  And many will have a chance to, this Wednesday, at 6 pm at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C.  There, Cong. Ryan will deliver a talk on health care and progressivism — and undoubtedly articulate in the clearest terms possible why the current administration’s statist agenda is exactly the wrong approach to fixing health-care in this country.  The talk is sponsored by the Kirby Center of Hillsdale College (see here for more details).

New England Journal of Medicine Pushes Reparations

Reparations would grant African Americans government benefits not paid to other Americans to rectify the awful sin of slavery and the "peculiar institution's" residual harm.
