We have a superbly competent, decent man working to make health care better and more affordable . . . and we fire him. Watch Don Berwick’s interview on ‘UP with Chris Hayes’ and you’ll have a better sense of why (a) the Affordable Health Care Act is a good one; (b) how immensely dysfunctional is the opposition – that filibusters its own proposed bipartisan deficit reduction committee (once the President signs on); that manufactures the debt-ceiling crisis; and that now fires the best man for a job we urgently need done. Why are we doing this to ourselves?
Quote of the Day
Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.~John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty
