Stupid. Stupid.

In a fundraising appeal titled "Hillarycare revisited," the RNC warned about "Obamacare" and said the government "already runs car companies, banks and mortgage companies. Republicans believe that the last thing the American people want is government telling them when and where — or even whether — they can get medical treatment for their families."

The American people much prefer their credit card companies telling them whether they can get medical treatment for their families.

All this argument is about how to ration, not whether to ration. Like every other good in our economy, health care. Today it's rationed by ability to pay; that may or may not be fair. Arguing that it shouldn't be rationed is either utopian, idiotic, or duplicitous.
