Today Robert Samuelson offers a scathing crtitique of President Obama’s healthcare proposal:

It’s hard to know whether President Obama’s health care “reform” is naive, hypocritical or simply dishonest. Probably all three. The president keeps saying it’s imperative to control runaway health spending. He’s right. The trouble is that what’s being promoted as health care “reform” almost certainly won’t suppress spending and, quite probably, will do the opposite.

Another piece in the WSJ explains how any public plan will inevitably lead to the end of private insurance.  Good to see so much discussion of the really costs and consequences of government-run healthcare.
