“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” wasn’t the only lie Barack Obama told us about ObamaCare. Telling people they can keep their current coverage and their doctors, or even get better coverage, while paying less and seeing more sick and uninsured people get on the healthcare system is economic fantasy. Barack Obama promised people that they could have a free lunch, and too many of us, out of intellectual laziness, greed, and partisan blindness, lined up for one. Used to demanding that other people pay for their benefits, these folks are now finding out, too late, that they are the main course. There is no free lunch–not now, not ever.
