Government health care? NOT A health scare


With roughly three weeks remaining before Congress hopes to pass comprehensive health care reform, certain truths seem impossible to avoid: 1) Our nation's health care system, if it were a patient, would be lying in bed with a broken back. 2) Three weeks is not a lot of time to fix, or begin fixing, something that has been broken for decades. And 3) A lot of people with vested interests in the Way Things Are will likely say some very scary things about health care reform to the American people. (Actually, I can think of few things scarier than VP Joe Biden opening his mouth about any issue, and when he says "Health care is on track," I'm wondering if it's a runaway train about to hit a busload of senior citizens.)
