Govt. health care

Posted By on Fri, Jul 31, 2009 at 6:17 AM

Like your private health care? Thank government intervention for it, Paul Krugman writes. Without subsidies and attached government requirements that keep insurance companies from barring the unhealthy or only serving highly paid employees, it wouldn't amount to much.

Also remember: Medicare is single payer insurance. Try to take it away from retired Americans.

Bottom line: unregulated free market won't work for health care.
