Obama Losing Seniors on Healthcare
UPDATE: In the meantime, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey offers a free market alternative to the Democrats' proposed government takeover of the system.
It is absurd for Democrats to argue that health insurance is a "right" when they don't argue that having food or shelter is. Which is more fundamental to existence?
Yet, few Dems are arguing for a government takeover of the housing market because some people are homeless. Few Dems are arguing that the government needs to take over the food delivery system because some sad cases in this country go to sleep hungry.
By its large involvement, the government has distorted the health insurance market, making it less fair, less efficient and more expensive. Sensible reforms of the sort recommended by Mackey and others can be made but won't be by government-expanding liberal Democrats. Instead they are offering a government takeover. The more people learn about Democratic plans the less they like them.
