This is Eugene Robinson's take, opinion, on the subject. And no doubt many here on Common Dreams agree with him. I would also like to see the take, informed opinion, of someone from the Cato Institute.
I see a breathtaking amount of naivety on display.
-- That WashDC must dictate to the states what government-regulated-provided healthcare must provide, except that California or Vermont have the right to "go further and faster" towards the goal. No respect for Justice Louis Brandeis' statement that the 'States are the laboratories of democracy.'
-- That the mass of people are ignorant racists who have to be led guided and regulated by their progressive betters,
-- That talented people who go into business, for themselves or in corporations are selfish, self-centered and evil.
-- That progressives (like Maduro in Venezuela) can be put in charge of government and produce better results for society than any other human arrangement.
* Forgetting James Madison's remark that men are not angels, and such an ideal government isn't possible in our world.
