ObamaCare & Our Family Snow Day Cost-Benefit Analysis

Across Virginia and much of the country, students will get a basic Economic lesson in the form of Make-Up Snow Days.  There is no Free Lunch.  For every Benefit there is a Cost. 

My Mini-Me is grappling with the abstract concept of trade-offs with new found clarity.  Last week’s snow cancelled a scheduled sleep-over birthday party at Brendan’s.  A martial arts competition now conflicts with the rescheduled party.  “Tough call,” said Pops, “but it’s your call and you gotta make it.”

SNOW DAYS:  But worse than a Karate-Party trade-off was his realization that extra days might be added to the end of the school year.  Up to that point, Lil Brow thought Snow Days were F-R-E-E.

PIVOT:  Expecting ObamaCare to expand coverage, reduce costs and improve outcomes is kinda like believing every day can be a Snow Day.

Brendan’s party won out.

My apologies to Browns Fans but accept some solace that it might be Scott BROWN who made the hit.
