Health Care Blog Loses It, Part II

Matthew Holt of the Health Care Blog has responded to my response to his letter on health care.

Briefly, he thinks a government-run “universal” health care system, financed by taxes and run by bureaucrats, would improve health care for the American people. I believe government-run health care would kill people.

In the latest round, Matthew changes the subject to inheritance taxes. It bothers him that some call them “death taxes.”

What does that have to do with health care? Beats me.

One can only hope that all the advocates of socialized medicine prove to be no more articulate than Mr. Holt.

Could save a lot of lives that way.

Addendum: A correspondent chimes in: “Maybe he’s not changing the subject.”
