I Agree with Howard Dean…

Okay, I am not 100% in agreement with him, but he is correct in asserting (as he does in this piece) that the health care bill on the verge of passing out of the US Senate “expands private insurers’ monopoly over health care and transfers millions of taxpayer dollars to private corporations.” In sum, it is not the way to reform health care.

Of course, where Dean and I disagree is in what direction to actually take health care. Dean’s objection to the Senate bill is that the federal government’s role is too small whereas I’d like to reduce government’s role in standing between market forces and the health care system. Here’s a good description of a free market direction that, with any luck, Congress will seriously consider after (hopefully) killing this horrible legislation.
