Rarely will you see the inhuman heartlessness of the conservative viewpoint so well expressed as in this freakishly horrible piece by American Enterprise Institute “scholar” Michael Strain: End Obamacare, and People Could Die. That’s Okay.
It’s difficult to know where to start with a morally perverted piece like this. His point seems to be that we make moral tradeoffs all the time, not exactly an original thought. But Strain gives away his game with this paragraph:
How do policymakers decide such things? In the deepest sense, every human life is inestimably valuable. But in a fallen world where trade-offs are inevitable, public policy can’t treat each life that way.
In his position of great privilege, Strain obviously thinks of himself as a righteous “pro-life” Christian. But he’s quite literally advocating that if they get sick, people less privileged than himself should just … die.
