Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman would have been 98 today. Though he died in 2006, his lessons about freedom are timeless. Below, is a video of Mr. Friedman talking about how a government bureau could not even make a pencil! Which begs the question: what makes them think they can run our healthcare?

Some background. What Mr. Friedman was referring to in this clip, was a work by Leonard E. Reed. Thanks to the good people at The Foundation For Economic Education (FEE), you can read “I, Pencil” for yourself by Clicking Here.
