Update from the bizarro world of the blue dog Democrats

The latest leak regarding the 'compromise' reform plan being crafted by Montana senator Max Baucus reveals the main problem the US health care system:

Mr. Baucusís plan, expected to cost $850 billion to $900 billion over 10 years, would tax insurance companies on their most expensive health care policies. The hope is that employers would buy cheaper, less generous coverage for employees, thereby reducing the overuse of medical services.

That's right. The main problem is that you and I use the health care system too much.

Excuse me while my brain explodes.

They do realize that the goal should not be for the insurance companies to continue to make huge profits, but for the average American to have health coverage equal to the average European.....right?

I'm afraid they don't, and that's the problem. Money and power usually always wins over reason.. I'm happy I live in europe, even though we to have some issues with insurance companies.
