To paraphrase Milton Friedman, economists may not know much, but they do know how to produce a shortage or surplus. Price ceilings, which prevent prices from exceeding a certain maximum, cause shortages.

Since the 13th amendment effectively banned involuntary servitude, what will the state do when intelligent, ambitious people decide NOT to become doctors, nurses and health care technicians?

Perhaps CA can work it so that healthcare is rationed to the elderly, thus trimming the greater cost of state pensions. Killing two birds with one stone.

Good job Democrats...health care is now—and will always be—a politicized blunt instrument.

And I bet not a word about the high cost of turning a blind eye to and often supporting illegal immigrants. Especially when it comes to providing medical care.

The thing for them to do now is to elect for moonbeam’s replacement an experienced Moslem governor like the mayor from Londonstan that has experience with socialized medicine (and who knows how to drum up more business for that healthcare industry :)
