Putting health care into perspective when discussing the budget

November 12, 2010 | By | Reply More

Check out this short comment and the accompanying chart in this Mother Jones article by Kevin Drum. He has some good advice on how to get serious when discussing the budget. If you are not considering spiraling health care costs, you are are not being serious. Connecting the dots, Obama’s health care “reform” was not serious. The Republican proposals are even less serious, amounting to government-implemented social darwinism.

I would add that our immense military expenditures also deserve scrutiny and the budget axe.
