Quote of the Day

The White House report ["The Economic Case for Health Care Reform"] makes the argument that there must be controls on what all Americans spend on health care in order to avoid government programs running huge deficits. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius uses the same faulty logic, warning that "the only way to slow Medicare spending is to slow overall health system spending through comprehensive and carefully crafted legislation."

In truth, Medicare can be fixed without subjecting the nation to medical scarcity. Telling all Americans they have to cut back on health care because Medicare is fiscally unsound is like ordering all Americans to go on diets because the food stamp program is in trouble.
