We asked THCB contributor Maggie Mahar for her quick take on the health care policies of each of the presidential candidates. We were pretty much expecting one of Maggie’s trademarked dissertations – a meticulously researched critique of each politician’s views on various important substantive issues. Instead this entertaining reply turned up in our email inbox.
“If Clinton wins we have real national health care reform.
If Obama wins, I’m not so sure, given that Cutler thinks we’re getting value for our dollars, and healthcare doesn’t seem to be a big priority for Obama (although his plan seems a lot like hers).
If McCain wins, we all move to Canada. Northern Canada, where will not only have healthcare, but may be able to avoid the fall-out from the nuclear war that he starts.”
