Healthcare Reform Redux

The politically centrist Kaiser Health News, which has been reliably tracking the healthcare reform debate for these past months, has teamed up with the New Republic -- a liberal debating forum -- to produce the article linked below.

Marshaling an array of incontestable facts, the article takes the GOP to task for egregiously claiming that it's been left out of the healthcare debate while concurrently trying to scare the bejeezus out of Seniors by telling them that the Democrats are out to take away their Medicare.

In the end, of course, the debate comes down to whether one believes in a monolithically capitalistic free market economy, or one in which the government steps in with progressive social-welfare initiatives designed to "provide for...the General Welfare" (U.S. Constitution: Article I, Sect. 8).
