Market based health reform? Sure! Great idea!
This one is gonna leave a mark:
Here?s what McCain has to say about the wonders of market-based health reform:
Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.
So McCain, who now poses as the scourge of Wall Street, was praising financial deregulation like 10 seconds ago ? and promising that if we marketize health care, it will perform as well as the financial industry!
Expect to hear this one over and over in the coming week. If we’d have to bail it out anyway at some point, why not just have universal government health care from the get go? Free market ho!
