In November 2015, then-radio-host Stephen Bannon was interviewing then-presidential-candidate Donald Trump. During the interview, Trump expressed concern that, owing to American immigration laws, many foreign students attending elite American universities were being forced to return home after graduation. “We have to be careful of that, Steve,” said Trump. “You know, we have to keep our talented people in this country.”

Democrats introduced single-payer health care legislation last week that—if passed—would move every American into a single, government-run insurance program, within two years. The bill already has over 100 co-sponsors in the U.S. House, and many of the Democratic Party’s candidates for president in 2020 are sure to endorse it too. But, as with other plans to bring socialized medicine to all Americans, this single-payer legislation has plenty of drawbacks.

I read about 20 to 25 web sites a day and one I look at regularly is Instapundit. For those who don’t know, it was started by University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds some years ago and the title is descriptive. He and his co-bloggers post almost 100 entries a day and it is “Insta.” That is, a lot of the posts are simply links with one-line descriptions or brief additions. Occasionally, though, the posts are longer.

'Medicare For All' Is An Expensive Wrecking Ball

with Charles Blahousvia The Hill
Thursday, March 7, 2019

"Medicare for all" sounds good and may make good electioneering slogan sense for presidential candidates like Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). It is a sales pitch to younger voters and will likely remain popular — at least until the public really understands what an expensive wrecking ball it is.
