Healthcare policy

2012-07-11 20:46:40.860723+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

Whatever you're opinion of the Affordable Care Act, it's pretty obvious that the politics here have gone way the hell off the rails: Republicans are completely dividing along partisan lines and ignoring actual policy positions.

"...Only in America could a Democratic president pass Mitt Romney’s health plan and fund it partly through John McCain’s best idea from the last campaign (taxing some employer-provided plans) and be branded a “socialist.” "

The CBO says 1.1 trillion here http://cbo.gov/publication/43080

Of course the hope is that those costs will be more than made up for by reduced emergency room use.

That's an argument I can get behind. Among the more rabid GOP proponents I'm exposed to, it isn't an argument I hear.

That's because Romney and McCain are also socialists.
