That’s the gist of this article on AOL News. Writes Andrea Stone: “Never mind that the public debate and advocacy ads depict nightmare scenarios of ‘government bureaucrats’ denying medical care, the recent controversy over breast cancer screening being only the latest. Taxpayers already cover nearly half of the nation’s health care spending.”
The question, of course, is whether we want to expand that government control of health care or move toward more of a true free-market model. Unfortunately, Republicans seldom frame the issue in that way, preferring to instead score points off of Democrats voting for Medicare cuts.
