Giuliani And Health Care
by

Finished up a conference call about an hour ago with the Giuliani people regarding the health care plan Hizzoner will release tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it, for two reasons.

First, Giuliani appears to be surrounding himself with the right people on health care. The health care advisors to Giuliani that participated in the conference call included Mark McClellan, Sally Pipes, David Gratzer, and Stephen Goldsmith–on health care, solid free marketeers all.

Second, Carl Cameron of Fox News asked what cost containment policies would be included in Giuliani’s proposal. I don’t recall who answered the question, but the gist of the answer was that the best type of cost containment is consumers getting value for their money. To me, that meant letting choice and competition work to drive prices down, like they do in markets that don’t feel the heavy hand of government.

If that sort of thinking informs the entire Giuliani health care proposal, then those who favor free markets in health care will finally have something to cheer about in this presidential election.

UPDATE: And if I really like the plan, I will do a write-up for the Spectator. But only if I learn to spell Giuliani first. No promises on that.
