Dean Baker writes

There is something a bit obscene about billions of taxpayer dollars going to the country’s richest people, when average workers can’t afford health care for their kids.

    Misleading at best.

    What’s obscene is the gov’t getting involved in the free market. The banks are at least 50% of the reason for the subprime mess. Let them clean it up.

    As for the hinting at gov’t health care.. I’m tired of hearing about it from these talking heads who couldn’t give a hoot for the “average worker”. Talk to some Brits and find out how “great” state run health care is. Read the newspapers and discover stories like the UK telling pregnant women to get a midwife because the hospitals don’t have the money available for birthing procedures. …Talk to my German wife and see how gov’t healthcare actually works.
