Monday's HOT MIC

Monday's HOT MIC

Michael, you know, I've been doing health care analysis for some time. I regularly get comments saying that morality insists we must provide everyone good, affordable health care.  Every time, the core of my counterargument is "but the arithmetic doesn't work."

Now you're asserting that even if Amazon and other big retailers make things more affordable for everyone, Amazon should be broken up. You say: "The primary question here is moral: do you want to put your neighbors on the unemployment line?"

Well, it's the same answer: the arithmetic is against you. If you think you can go against arithmetic, check Venezuela.
