Ms Rubin proves her bona-fides again...
Ah, Jennifer Rubin. Primo shill for Mittens.
She still doesn't "get" Obamacare. She still thinks there's a viable 'free market' alternative (there is: it's called a "nationalized system"). She's still arguing that health care should be left to the market.
I don't think *anyone* with a working brain wants the days of "I got turned down because I'd exceeded my lifetime maximum health care expenditures of $5.05! I've got thousands and thousands of dollars of bills to pay as a result!" And yet, Ms Rubin is still going on and on about an alternative to Obamacare. The reason, Mr Rubin, that your Idle Idol didn't offer an alternative to Obamacare is that there isn't one!
I'll not mention that the system Obamacare uses actually came from a right-wing think tank and was fleshed out by a right wing governor (I think his name was "Mittens") and the details of it were developed by an MIT economist who happens to be able to explain and defend the implementation rather well. Much better than any "alternative" we've so far not seen from Ms Rubin or those who agree with her.
