The Road To Reform

My St. John's brother Jeff Allport on government's role in stimulating innovation:
[E]ven the most libertarian of those who don't want the government to tread on them use our freeway systems and complain about toll roads. We've all learned to consider driving a "right." We just haven't reached the same conclusion on healthcare. If we did, we'd demand government sponsored information exchange and bristle at privately controlled healthcare delivery for the privileged. We got our roads, and our innovation built the rest.
