An Unhealthy Health Insurance Debate

Although in the end he's correct to note, in relation to the Republicans, that the weakness of their own plans
may explain why many in the third camp prefer to talk about death panels and rationing rather than the beauties of their own health-care plans
I think he would do his readers a favor by instructing his regular columnists, "I'm talking about you, also, and it needs to change", or by not presenting such a simplistic caricature of healthcare reform proposals.

Contrary to Hiatt's belief, the strongest voices for change and universal access tend not to be "liberal Democrats" - but tend to be people of all political stripes who have been burned by the status quo. If only he (and his paper) would listen, but then... they give us some sense of where their actual sympathies lie....
