Milton Friedman vs. Hillary Clinton
From Thomas Kuper at Human Events: "I thought it would be interesting to do a compare and contrast between a champion of the free market (Milton Friedman) versus a champion of government (Hillary Clinton)." Here are a few examples:
"The unfettered free market has been the most radically destructive force in American life in the last generation."
~First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996 stating her troubles with the free market
"What most people really object to when they object to a free market is that it is so hard for them to shape it to their own will. The market gives people what the people want instead of what other people think they ought to want. At the bottom of many criticisms of the market economy is really lack of belief in freedom itself."
~Milton Friedman, Wall Street Journal, May 18, 1961
"Too many people have made too much money."
~First Lady Hillary Clinton condemns the insurance industry, feeling it’s not fair that certain businesses are making ‘too much money’
"'Fair' is in the eye of the beholder; free is the verdict of the market. The word 'free' is used three times in the Declaration of Independence and once in the First Amendment to the Constitution, along with 'freedom.' The word 'fair' is not used in either of our founding documents."
~Milton Friedman, WSJ, Mar. 7, 1996
