The Free Market Doesn’t Care If You Live or Die

Mother nature does not care if you live or die.

Epipen’s patent has expired and the free market is racing to replace it.

ObamaCare prevents insurers from charging tanning bed users more for premiums (not that they ever did) and requires the young who are the poorest age group to subsidize the richest age groups.

People know tanning beds cause cancer and still choose to use them, but maybe many of them are quitting tanning beds not because of a $3/month tax but because they choose spray tans instead.

You say “ The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network says those who use tanning beds before age 35 increase their lifetime risk of melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer, by 59 percent.”, but the American Lung Association says “Men who smoke are 23 times more likely to develop lung cancer. Women are 13 times more likely, compared to never smokers.

In a legal sense, corporations are “persons”. This does not translate into corporations are people. They are made up of people who can be sued for wrongdoing, but for the most part Republicans and yes Democrats let corporations pay a fine when instead people should be going to jail. It would be interesting to see the effect on other corporations if a corporation was “jailed” for a year or more.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
