Which health care plan?!by James Sandefer on Dec. 09, 2009, under Politics
The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, announced that he and a number of Democratic senators had reached “a broad agreement” to resolve a dispute over a proposed government-run health insurance plan, which has posed the biggest obstacle to passage of sweeping health care legislation. Mr. Reid refused to provide details. That government transparence thing is working out real well. How can we, the taxpayers, be expected to support or oppose legislation that has yet to be released? Yet those on both sides of the aisle are vehemently pushing their plan, whatever that may be. This entire exercise is further support for establishing term limits and evidence that we don’t need professional politicians.
