Stossel: 'America Needs "Healthy Wisconsin"'

You get torn with logic like this. But, with free market libertarians, you come to expect it.

As a free market Wisconsinite, you can't help but cringe.

In a column today, ABC News John Stossel says that America needs "Healthy Wisconsin," just to watch it crash and burn, then learn from the mistake.

That's why America needs "Healthy Wisconsin." The fall of the Soviet Union deprived us of the biggest example of how socialism works. We need laboratories of failure to demonstrate what socialism is like. All we have now is Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, the U.S. Post Office, and state motor-vehicle departments.

It's not enough. Wisconsin can show the other 49 states what "universal" coverage is like.

I feel bad for the people in Wisconsin. They already suffer from little job creation, and the Packers aren't winning, but it's better to experiment with one state than all of America.

I'm sure the other big Libertarian in media, Neal Boortz, has said something similar in recent weeks.
