QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Josh Patashnik, after linking to Michael Cannon’s livid blast against Arnold Schwarzenegger’s universal healthcare plan for California:
The conservative health care strategy works like this: endorse subsidies in theory, since it would seem unacceptably heartless to simply say that people who can’t afford medical care shouldn’t get it. Then, whenever anybody proposes a plan to actually implement subsidies, vehemently oppose it without offering any alternative plan to expand coverage. (Which is what California Republicans are doing.) In other words, let states experiment — except when they actually do.
