Why America Should Avoid Europe’s Mistakes and Reject Government Healthcare

leave a comment »

European Parliament Member Daniel Hannan became an overnight internet sensation earlier this year when a YouTube recording of his speech criticizing Europe’s massive government spending and record debt levels went viral. His comments in response to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s remarks before the European Parliament were the most viewed video for two days running and have received more than 2.4 million hits to date,

Dan Hannan’s speech opposing higher public spending, tax increases, and record borrowing in the current economic crisis sparked international debate and offers a stark warning of the dangers faced by the United States if lawmakers continue their path toward bigger government and more spending.

Dan Hannan is also fiercly critical of proposals to implement a British-style government-run health care plan in America. Last week, he warned how government-run healthcare has harmed Britain and would be a disaster for the United States.

Thanks to the Heritage Foundation, we are able to share his comments with you here.
