Losing In Fall OK With Democrats If It Means They Win Health Care

Mark Steyn's article summarizes the health care debate in simple terms, it is not about health care and not about controlling costs, it's about government and control.

Nobody has ever attempted this level of centralized planning for an advanced society of 300 million people.

Even the control freaks of the European Union have never tried to impose a unitary "comprehensive" health care system from Galway to Greece. The Soviet Union did, of course, and we know how that worked out.
