Howard Dean Says Republiucans Are Right On Health Care Bills!

While Left Wing nut Howard Dean is still wrong in believing a Public Option is the only way to go to provide Health Care, he is absolutely correct in what he says about the House and Senate bills for Health Care Reform. Dean’s comments in this video echo those in a post from a few days ago on this blog. Dean points out that the current bills will do nothing to save people money, and will, in fact, cause Health Care expenses to rise and force people to go uninsured – the exact opposite intent of the original ideas.

From Hot Air:

A couple of points are in order here. First, Dean’s notion of capping insurance premium charge rates at a 20% range means that the majority of people will be subsidizing those who are higher risks. If insurance companies are forced to guarantee issue and can only charge 20% higher for those plans to high-risk patients who normally cost them three or four times more than average patients, then insurance companies will simply increase their base rates to make up the difference. Instead of encouraging people to be healthy, the healthy will get heavily penalized. That’s obvious to everyone except populist politicians, apparently.

More importantly, Dean — who was a successful chair of the DNC and supposedly represented the mainstream of the Democratic Party — has now hitched himself to Socialist Bernie Sanders and the progressive wing of the party. Is Dean thinking about a 2012 run predicated on a politically wounded Obama who failed to pass health-care reform?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
