Just asking

These two questions from Victor Davis Hanson ought to be answered by anyone who supports health care “reform.” Which is really about a government takeover of health care. First through government control over the health insurance industry, then the rest will surely follow.

The questions are:

If ridding Medicare of waste and fraud will help pay for nationalized health care, why have we waited this long to realize such economies? And if Medicare is admittedly rife with abuse, why would an even larger government-run program be singularly exempt from the same inherent dangers?

Those with doubts about government efficiency in running large programs, please refer to the awful cash-for-clunkers debacle. A small program by government standards, yet a total goat’s afterbirth.
