Via Jennifer Rubin, I see this excellent WSJ editorial exposing what a catastrophe Romney’s universal health care reform has been for Massachusetts, which should be another lesson to all conservatives that supporting statist public policy initiatives and calling them “free market” does not change economic reality.
But I’ll give Romney credit on one thing. He showed us what happens when government shifts citizens onto heavily subsidized public plans:
Staggering, but totally unsurprising.
And people wonder why I’ve been so bearish on Romney as the leader of the conservative future, and why I think it would be a disaster for McCain to pick him as VP.
