Cognitive dissonance and health care
Proponents of the health care bill that just passed the House are telling us that the insurance companies can't be trusted. (They're right, incidentally). But, then what sense does it make to force people to buy insurance from those same sleazy companies? This isn't voluntary, either: If you don't buy private insurance, there is a large fine. Isn't this cognitive dissonance?
