Too good to be true

Robert Samuelson calls BS on the current health care reform:

The most misused word in the health care debate is “reform.” Everyone wants “reform,” but what constitutes “reform” is another matter. If you listen to President Obama, his “reform” will satisfy almost everyone. It will insure the uninsured, control runaway health spending, subdue future budget deficits, preserve choice for patients and improve quality of care. These claims are self-serving exaggerations and political fantasies. They have destroyed what should be a serious national discussion of health care.

It never hurts to remember that old saying “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is”. The current heath care reform promises the world. Everyone will get covered, you get to keep your current plan if you like it, and no one gets hurt by taxes (except for some rich folks you likely don’t know or care about). This is all based on the questionable assertion that the national health care system will be become more efficient with government oversight.

Sounds too good to be true.
