    like the NEW poll that shows public support for the D position, and relies too much on idelologues at Cato for 'balance'.

    Friday, Feb 29, 2008
    A new poll on health care from NPR, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health finds that a majority of Americans are backing key elements in the health reform proposals of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

    Sacks misinterprets the reform barriers to be widespread support for McCain's position. That's just wrong. He's quite right that there's no consensus between Ds and Rs as I point out, and he's right that the debate will shift, but he forgets that Rs are a minority and that indies are more aligned with Ds on this.

      it's a good article and glad it was published.

      The sooner we have the real debate, the better.
