Quote Of The Day, May 26, 2011

“All you really need to know about much of government reform is to go to two weddings. Go to one wedding where there’s a cash bar. And then go to another wedding where there’s an open bar. And you’ll see two very different sets of behavior. And If people have the impression that things are free, and they get to consume it endlessly, and the provider has the only incentive to provide on volume, and the myth or the lie is created that the bill goes somewhere else and that a third party pays for it, that is a system that I can tell you is doomed to failure and inefficiency. And that’s much of our government, unfortunately.”

– Tim Pawlenty, speaking at the Cato Institute yesterday
