Obama And The
Of Health Care

by Sarah Palin - September 8, 2009 - Wall Street Journal

Instead of poll-driven "solutions," let's talk about real health-care reform: market-oriented, patient-centered, and result-driven. As the Cato Institute's Michael Cannon and others have argued, such policies include giving all individuals the same tax benefits received by those who get coverage through their employers; providing Medicare recipients with vouchers that allow them to purchase their own coverage; reforming tort laws to potentially save billions each year in wasteful spending; and changing costly state regulations to allow people to buy insurance across state lines. Rather than another top-down government plan, let's give Americans control over their own health care.

Democrats have never seriously considered such ideas...

This is the second well reasoned article from Sarah Palin. I wonder if the conservative hate mongers that have joined liberals in denigrating her intelligence will be influenced? Kathleen Parker, Jonah Goldberg, Peggy Noonan and Charles Krauthammer were among many conservatives to insist she was not intelliegent enough to represent a movement where they were the intellectual leaders.

Though all four are pretty smart, I think that a lot of people are starting to learn that the Barracuda from Alaska is not the lightweight they thought she was.
