Obama’s healthcare horror
Heads should roll — beginning with Nancy Pelosi’s!
By Camille Paglia
*** begin quote ***
I just don’t get it. Why the insane rush to pass a bill, any bill, in three weeks? And why such an abject failure by the Obama administration to present the issues to the public in a rational, detailed, informational way? The U.S. is gigantic; many of our states are bigger than whole European nations. The bureaucracy required to institute and manage a nationalized health system here would be Byzantine beyond belief and would vampirically absorb whatever savings Obama thinks could be made. And the transition period would be a nightmare of red tape and mammoth screw-ups, which we can ill afford with a faltering economy.

Seems like Paglia gets it. I’m no fan of today’s liberals. But, being a classical liberal myself, I can understand the appeal of helping people. In the case of this nonsense in DC, we’ll be “helping” people into a mess. An inextricable mess.
For my own part, I’d suggest that we have one small change each year until we solve the problem. There is a problem here somewhere. Isn’t there?
I’m not so sure we have even defined the problem that Obama-care is supposed to solve?
How about if we make health insurance deductible to individuals? Then we would have EXACT numbers on % insured. (No one misses a tax DEDUCTION!)
