For your health

Posted By on Mon, May 5, 2008 at 6:17 AM

John Brummett examines the shortcomings of John McCain's thin ideas for health care.

It's unusual, you know, for McCain to get scrutiny.

Someday the cost of health insurance for the declining few able to afford it and the bankrupting of even people with insurance by exorbitant health care costs will propel the issue to a defining place in a national presidential race.

I just don't think that this is the year, sad to say.

The world's most powerful country doesn't have national health care. It should be an enduring shame.

AND FURTHERMORE: I happened to be rooting around the Family Council's website today and ran across a poll of its readers on the top issues in the presidential race. Not the war. Not the Second Amendment. Not illegal immigrants. No, the runaway leader was creating a national health care system. (For those of you unaware: the Family Council is a lobby for politically conservative Christians -- anti-gay, anti-gambling, etc.
