Quote to Note: Who Says America Is Not a Compassionate Nation?

"The non-surprise revealed here is that ObamaCare turns out to be just another subsidy program, throwing money at health care. In economics, you can't subsidize everybody but we're trying: 50 million Americans get help from Medicare, 65 million from Medicaid, nine million from the Department of Veterans Affairs, seven million (and counting) from ObamaCare, and a whopping 149 million from the giant tax handout for employer-provided health insurance."

Holman Jenkins, “ObamaCare and American Resurgence,” Wall Street Journal, September 16, 2014

P.S. This means 280 Americans out of our 315 million population or 88.9% receive health care subsidies in one form or another from the federal government.
