I approve of government programs done well. Michael Cannon doesn’t approve of them done much at all. We both disapprove of them being done expensively and then having so-called Conservatives in power lie bold face about their costs and enrollment rates. Yup, I’m sending you over to the Cato Institute blog. That might be a first for TPM Cafe, but it’s a great explanation of what’s wrong with Part D.

CODA: I haven’t made it thorugh Kling’s book yet, and I had a real problem with Cannon’s — as it missed the point so badly that I didn’t think it was worth reviewing. But with Radley Balko keeping up on the drug war stuff, Cato remains the thinking man’s right wing think-tank.
