Health Care Hopes by Paul Krugman NYTimes 9-21-07

Updated on September 21, 2007

For the latest on DEM and GOP presidential candidates' heath care proposals read Paul Krugman's op-ed in today's nyt.

"There won't be a serious Republican alternative. The health care plans of the leqading Republican candidates, such as they are, are the same old, same old: they principally rely on tax breaks that go mainly to the well-off, but will supposedly conjure up the magic of the market. As Ezra Klein of The American Prospect puts it cruelly but accurately: 'The Republican vision is for a world in which the sick and dying get to deduct some of the cost of health insurance that they don't have--and can't get--on their taxes.'"
