There’s an old joke that a quandary exists when your mother-in-law drives off a cliff in your new Porsche. Are you more happy about losing her or more unhappy about losing your sports car?
I’m not clever enough to come up with humorous quandaries, but I have shared policy quandaries.
I’ve asked, for instance, whether libertarians might have second thoughts about an end to drug prohibition if the result was bigger government.
And I speculated whether leftists or social conservatives would be more upset about a gay man legally adopting his lover in order to minimize Pennsylvania’s death tax.
And if you like this kind of thing, I have more than one dozen additional examples of these types of quandaries.
But what happens if there’s an issue pitting Obamacare and bureaucrats against each other? Would I be able to pick sides?
