Rove on a Repub view of medical insurance, in Opinion Journal.
My view? Well, let me rhetorically ask one question: If we had fully-socialized medicine today (with government employees performing your surgery - when they get around to it, within union guidelines, and if you don't conveniently die first - performed by people who aspire to be government employees) what domestic policy issue would the Dems run on? I guarantee that it would be whatever the next industry is on their hit list. They would agree upon the target, then demagogue (I know it's not really a verb) that issue for a few years, then try to go in for the kill.
There is one thing of which I am certain: It won't be the legal industry.
It won't be Big Soap or Big Furniture or Big Apricots or Big Books or Big Chicken or Big Appliances or Big Software or Big Music or Big Roofing or Big Computer or Big Tractor or Big Dildo or Big Hollywood either - all surely Evil Big Corporations, competing in countless evil ways to give you the stuff you want for a disgusting profit. It could be oil, following the Putin-Chavez path.
By the way, ya want fries with that appendectomy?
Comment from The Barrister: Just don't Biggie-size that surgery. For me it comes down to a simple question. To whom do I want to trust my health? Hillary Clinton or my doctor? I guess I want my doc, like my electrician, plumber, veterinarian, and lawyer, working just for me, not for the government. That is worth working for and paying for. Is anything more important to me? Not really...except maybe my vet.
