I hope people blame the wrecking ball operator and not the victims buried under the rubble when it comes time to vote.

It's amazing how many people subscribe to "It's bad, let's get rid of it" philosophy. This problem's hard, let's not solve it! You know who else has a weak central government? Somalia! But somehow it seems appealing to a lot of people that the "big bad government" in Washington needs to be disposed of, without thinking much about what will take its place.

Yes, Maryland is a great example! I suppose a single-payer system WOULD be better than marketplace approach after all! If it allowed an institution such as John Hopkins to flourish, I would imagine it would not destroy the Mayo Clinic either...
