How government regulations create more demand for government programs

The Clean Air Act has created a nation hooked on Medicare. They pass feel-good legislation in the guise of protecting us when the true goal is to get a nation hooked on big government largesse in the form of Medicare!

Air quality across the United States has improved dramatically since 1970 when Congress passed the Clean Air Act ... According to data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), levels of all major air pollution contaminants (ozone, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and lead) are down significantly since 1970; carbon monoxide levels alone dropped by more than 70 percent.

...

A 2009 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that efforts to reduce fine particle pollution ... have added between four and eight months to the average American’s life expectancy in recent years. Overall, Americans are living some two and three-quarter years longer than during the 1980s.

...

Pope and his team analyzed life expectancy, economic, demographic and pollution data from 51 metropolitan areas, and found that when fine-particle air pollution dropped by 10 micrograms per cubic meter, life expectancy rose by 31 weeks—such as in Akron, Ohio and Philadelphia. Where fine particle counts dropped even more—by 13 to 14 micrograms, such as in New York City, Buffalo and Pittsburgh—people lived some 43 weeks longer on average.

Ensure your beneficiary makes and brings with them to the States a copy of the DS-3025 (vaccination form)

If the government is going to force me to exercise my "right" to health care, then they better start requiring people to exercise their Right to Bear Arms. - "Where's my public option rifle?"

Or just letting people exercise their own liberties.

Evil government keeping good businesses from ensuring that Americans don't become too much of a drain on the retirement systems.

Who benefits when more Americans live longer?

Government employees, that's who! All those jobs administering the monstrosity that is Medicare.

The only thing government has to do to be successful is grow.

You sound like a fortune cookie.

Name one business out there that could succeed if they manufactured nothing, sold nothing, and got bigger every year.
