Another Universal Health Care Failure

Dr. Paul Hsieh at We Stand FIRM reports:

Maine governor John Baldacci will ask President-elect Obama to bail out the state’s failing Dirigo “universal health care” system with federal Medicaid money.

If universal care is adopted at the national level, who will bail out the US?

Good question, doc.  And one more people — especially in the mainstream media — should be asking.

An excerpt from the above-linked Bangor Daily News article:

[Governor John Baldacci] said a major goal of the overall Dirigo program is reducing health care costs by prevention.

A certain antediluvian reptile could have informed the good Governor that preventive care often costs rather than saves money.
