News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Nationalized Health Care

Via Instapundit, we have strong evidence that the nationalized health care vision supported by then-First Lady Hillary Clinton probably wouldn't have worked. All that program managed to do was elect the first Republican Congress in decades. (For this, I give hearty thanks.)

Tennessee's attempt to cover more people than a standard state Medicaid program (including uninsurables) meant that program costs skyrocketed, and now it's being cut back.

There's a telling line in the article:

Bredesen said it was federal lawsuits over past attempts to limit prescription drug use that had forced him to have ''hard'' rather than soft limits.

Yes, our nation's fine trial lawyers have demonstrated just how much they fight for the little people.
