I’m loath to say this, but I am rapidly gaining more faith in my view that the more choice (and responsibility) you give people the bigger chance you are taking they will not make the right choice. No, no don’t get me wrong I’m not talking about some all powerful me or anyone else knowing the choices people should make, but rather the overall impact of these choices on society.
The choices I’m referring to are things like saving for retirement, enrolling in health insurance, obtaining an education and any number of other important life choices and what were once responsibilities.
Is America ready to throw in the towel and just raise taxes and then provide everyone with free health care, retirement income, college, and day care? Is that what Americans want?
