Apparently the 15m uninsured in Obama’s plan are all Jonathan Cohn’s fault. At least the picking up on that number by Hillary and Edwards in the debates, that is.
I’m still struggling with how Obama is correctly to the left of those guys on the only foreign policy that really matters but in a foolish place on health care. Anyone relying on David Cutler for advice on health care must be seriously internally conflicted over what the aim is! After all Cutler seems to be too.
More on that to come later this week; but my explanation is that Obama shares my belief that health reform is impossible in 2009—so why bother?
