Government Health Care
One more item from NRO: Obama sent a letter to Senators Kennedy and Baucus outlining his "plan" (3 pages) for taking over U.S. health care. Basically, health coverage would be mandated and provided (at extreme cost) to most Americans. An independent commission would then magically work out all the little details of what benefits will be cut, where the money will come from and how long your wait will be for an x-ray or brain surgery. Utopian schemes always sound nice at the beginning, but in the real world WE DON'T HAVE THE MONEY. Not even all of us put together can pay for this type of program! Our only chance is to stall until 2010--better start up more tea parties . . .
