In Which Someone Pegs The Problem With The Health Care "Debate"

I mentioned here that it really doesn't matter if HR3200 specifically outlaws private health-care, implements a single-payer plan, or does or does not have anything in it about "death panels".

DrRich concurs.

This is more than just a camel's nose in the tent, a foot in the door. This is specifically designed to take full advantage of that foot in the door to implement things nobody would vote for over the next several years.

DrRich gets a sidebar, too, and this James Madison quote he posted sealed the deal:

“It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood…” - The Federalist #62, James Madison
Which is what we have here. And it's no accident.
