Re: Obama's "Public" Health Care Plan
There I might have to agree. If government sponsored is also going to mean government controlled, then there will be problems- especially in cost. If they get it started and let it fly on a privatized basis- like ATT & the Postal Service, then it will likely pwn BOTH government and profit-based solutions. And, unlike AT&T and the USPS, this may be the only natural monopoly that technology can make instead of break.

I'm not a pure capitalist or socialist. I'm a dam engineer. Use whatever works best.

"We say in our platform that we believe that the right to coin money and issue money is a function of government....
Those who are opposed to this proposition tell us that the issue of paper money is a function of the bank and that the government ought to go out of the banking business. I stand with Jefferson rather than with them, and tell them, as he did, that the issue of money is a function of the government and that the banks should go out of the governing business."
