“Sounds like a great idea. With the best of intentions. What could possibly go wrong?”

Reason.tv presents Great Moments in Unintended Consequences!

The video profiles the unintended consequences of three government policies that went very wrong — Osborne Reef, a used tire artificial reef that is an environmental disaster, corn ethanol subsidies, and a part of the Obamacare legislation that is already causing insurers to stop issuing child-only health insurance plans.

As the video says at one point, it might be funny, if it wasn’t just sad.  After so many failures, our betters in government haven’t learned that they cannot control all the variables and therefore should show some humility.
