ProJo’s Last Shot at Brown – Scare Tactics
On election day in Massachusetts, the desperate ProJo editors have resorted to listing a bunch of “what ifs?” should Scott Brown be elected and Obamacare not pass. Notwithstanding that a counter-argument can be made that passing this particular monstrosity called health care “reform” would make all of the items they identify even worse, the panicked essay reveals that the fatal flaw in their reasoning still exists. They clung so stubbornly to a mythical, ideal single-payer system–like Medicare for all!–that they’ve been blind to other (yes, free market) reforms that would accomplish many of their desired goals, if differently. So they’re left to exclaim that we need to pass something, anything (“the warts can be removed later“) before it’s too late.
