Yes, by all means let's have the same planner-heavy approach applied to the nations' medical care, too. What could go wrong?
Providing a temporary stipend to the poor to allow them to find local housing rather than create public hosuing will always be a better approach.

It affords the person receiving the aid the knowlege that it is limited and the impetus to find a better way before the sid runs out.
I have yet to find an urban destruction project that did not do more harm than good. Egghead planners have a genius for ignoring human nature as applied to neighborhood bonding and interaction. The Boston ethnic cleansing of Little Italy and other close-knit population centers in the name of civic improvement sent up an early red flag, but a bureaucrat is hard to stop when his career is going to be the only guaranteed beneficiary of his brainstorm.

I have posted this already here before You guys should stop complaining because, one the health care we have now isnt as good as it was supposed to be. also the law has just been signed so give it some time. so if u want to say u have the right to choose tell that to ur congress men or state official. If you do not have insurance and need one You can find full medical coverage at the lowest price check .If you have health insurance and do not care about cost just be happy about it and believe me you are not going to loose anything!
Moses was a product of his time and seized the opportunities for federal funding whether housing or highways. He was simply particularly good at joining the slipstream or urban renewal. What is much less clear in this article is how "the significance of grassroots resistance to it that preceded Jacobs’s famous Greenwich Village stand" manifested itself. Yes, there were protests against Lincoln Center. But who else besides Jacobs submitted a rationale critique, circa 1958-1961?
