I do so love it when liberals tell me that there is no socialism in their burning desire for Health Care Reform. I’m sure I’d feel reassured, if it weren’t for administration appointees like Dr. Donald Berwick.
“You could have had a monstrous insurance industry of claims and rules and paper-pushing instead of using your tax base to provide a single route of finance. You could have protected the wealthy and the well, instead of recognizing that sick people tend to be poorer and that poor people tend to be sicker. And that any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane must—must–redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional. Britain, you chose well.”
Surely, this must have been a mistake.
or maybe not…
