A Failure to Learn from the Experience of Others

Imagine an enterprise where it is in nobody’s interest to conserve limited resources. Under government controlled health care hospitals become the adopted offspring of the government – wallowing in their own waste, chronically underfunded, under staffed and bankrupt. Vermonters should realize that the elimination of free market health decisions would result in such an outcome. After all, are they not wise enough to learn from the experience of others? Eh?
