"Health Care Reform"

The Editors, National Review, On the Latest "Health Care Reform" Bill Introduced This Week by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus:
"Like the bills that have been approved by committees in the House and Senate, the Baucus plan is built on mandates, expanded governmental control, and taxes. It would require all Americans to sign up for government-approved insurance or face a hefty federal tax penalty - up to $3,800 per family. Employers would be required to offer insurance conforming to government specs or pay a head tax on each of their full-time employees.

"There is no breakthrough miracle cure to be found here: Insurance coverage is expanded with tried-and-true, heavy-handed regulation. Americans who don't play along will be disciplined by the IRS."
