¡Grande Krugman en el New York Times!

 "I’m referring, as you might guess, to what happened during Monday’s G.O.P. presidential debate. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Representative Ron Paul what we should do if a 30-year-old man who chose not to purchase health insurance suddenly found himself in need of six months of intensive care. Mr. Paul replied, “That’s what freedom is all about — taking your own risks.” Mr. Blitzer pressed him again, asking whether “society should just let him die.” And the crowd erupted with cheers and shouts of “Yeah!”... And what this means is that modern conservatism is actually a deeply radical movement, one that is hostile to the kind of society we’ve had for the past three generations — that is, a society that, acting through the government, tries to mitigate some of the “common hazards of life” through such programs as Social Security, unemployment insurance, Medicare and Medicaid.
(Free to die)

Si te pones enfermo y no tienes seguro médico, sólo te queda morir. Según los republicanos, todos asumimos riesgos... convirtiendo al neoconservadurismo en un modo de pensar contrario a una sociedad basada en la compasión, un modo de pensar que cada vez se siente más seguro y es más capaz de mostrar su verdadero rostro.

El horror a cambio de una casa en la playa o una piscina más.
