Obama's Health Care Speech Tonight
Obama assures America that there is nothing in his plan that will prevent individuals from keeping the insurance they have.
Then in the very next breath he explains at length how he's going to screw the insurance companies - for instance by compelling them to cover pre-existing conditions.
Decoded: You can keep the coverage you have, BUT we're rewriting it.
His great advantage is that there is not much in the way of principled opposition to socialism in American politics. What politician is willing to affirm that hospital emergency rooms ought to be free to turn away patients who can't pay?
And short of that, you agree with the main thrust of what Obama said more or less explicitly tonight: To each according to his need.
