Back in the U.S.S.R.
by

Matt Yglesias, a blogger for the liberal Center for American Progress, cites Soviet-era life expectancy data to argue that, “the dread U.S.S.R. actually did a perfectly decent job of providing the sort of goods—health care, basic education, subways, nuclear missiles, vast prison camps, satellite launch vehicles—that in most democracies are provided by the state.”

And yet it would be a “scare tactic” for me to argue that liberals favor government-run health care.
