Charles Krauthammer is Wrong
Charles Krauthammer has an interesting column today, 'Obamacare: The Only Exit Strategy." He suggests that all current 'plans' be abandoned and that a new version be passed requiring all individuals to have health insurance with insurance companies required to insure all regardless of pre-existing health conditions. Sadly, he concludes that the financial and budgetary costs will be catastrophic and in the end the liberals will get rationing anyway.
We're not sure that Charles writes tongue-in-cheek or seriously. Regardless, he fails to provide real solutions. We simply say throw the whole thing out and let Americans continue to control 17% of the economy while doing real things like allowing folks to buy health care across state lines, allowing businesses to form buying co-ops across state lines and enacting tort reform.
