Columnist Dick Morris says, "First, a brief congratulations to all on having seemingly killed the public option. Without our efforts, it would be en route to becoming law. Now there will not be a government owned, government run and government subsidized insurance company that will put all others out of business. But the current proposal Sen. Harry Reid is loudly trumpeting is horribly flawed, as well. It has all of the old flaws (minus the public option) in that the government, through the secretary of health and human services, will decide who gets what treatment at what cost and will force rationing through an artificial scarcity on all people, particularly the elderly. And it still has such high premiums for young uninsured people that it will compete with student loans for the honor of being their number one headache."
