If You Like Your Health Insurance, You Can Keep It..... Snicker.... Snort... HA! Just kidding, you can't even keep your Doctor.

Remember what I said about unintended consequences? Well here's a doozy.

Economics is all about scarcity. There just aren't unlimited resources for everything no matter how much you want to make it a "right." There is only so much coastline to build houses on, and no "right to housing" is going to change that. There are only so many health care professionals out there and legislating them out of the profession because you think health care is a "right" isn't going to create more resources to get that "right."

So what's next? Enslave doctors? Well if you are going to make it a law and a "right", how else will you force it to happen?
