    “China Rising?” The Post Gets It Mostly Right

    WaPo: "Legislative Sausage" Health Care Plan Could Lead to Single-Payer Insurance

    Today’s Washington Post editorial page takes a critical look at Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) latest “compromise” health care bill, which it describes as 11th-hour “legislative sausage” that was “made on the fly” and includes ideas dating “at least to the Clinton administration.” Most significantly, though, the Washington Post sees … More
