Shaila Dewan -- Another NY Times Mindless Polemicist

Today's article in the NY Times by Shaila Dewan extolling the virtues of the "Affordable Care Act" is a classic.  Folks who get heavily subsidized health insurance are helped by the Act, according to Dewan.  That startling news is the sum and substance of the article.

Why do they benefit?  Because they don't have to pay.

On that logic, we should pass a law making everything free.  Then we could all benefit from free stuff.

There are no losers in Ms. Dewan's mind when the government provides free stuff.  So, why not cut to the chase.  Make everything free.

Ms. Dewan's article is supposedly an "economics" article.
