A less ideological health plan

by havoc

I’ve been wondering for a while why nobody contrasts Obama’s health
care proposal with some of the past Democratic proposals. It’s a
market-based, incremental proposal, that makes use of existing
programs and existing insurance companies.

Today Obama’s campaign has a new ad making this point, so I guess I’m on their
wavelength. After my What happened to John
McCain?
post, the next day Obama ripped that
off
, too, for a negative ad.

Finally fixing health care would make a huge difference for quite a
few people I know. It may be the single most consequential thing the
government could do.

If you watched the debates, see factcheck.org’s
coverage. They ding both candidates on multiple claims.
