I wonder what the democrats (i.e. Obama and just yesterday Hillary) will do once this no longer becomes a campaign issue?

Interesting idea, very preliminary, but shows that capitalism is still functioning (thank G-d)

Mcp001:

While that idea could make paying for healthcare cheaper for the Big 3, chances are that it would not put them on a level playing field with the Japanese...so this is a non-issue for the candidates

In the absence of universal healthcare, and with the unions still very much alive, did they really have any other choice? When you see your ship sinking, you have to do something. This isn't some plan devised out of some grand, capitalistic vision, if anything, this looks to be devised out of sheer circumstance and desperation.

The trouble with health care is people should not have to pay for it. The government should provide it for free. That way it won't cost anything, right?
