Daschle’s not gone. He’s giving behind-the-scenes advice.

Obama health plan will not cover illegal immigrants. That’s one out of every five uninsured and a big deal in places like Texas and California.

Krugman takes the gloves off: “it’s now clear that even as they met with the president, pretending to be cooperative, insurers were gearing up to play the same destructive role they did the last time health reform was on the agenda.”

    Daschle’s not gone? Why am I not surprised.

  2. Jack S. says:

    So can we go back to Daschle’s book and assume that’s the plan?

    Krugman’s attack on Blue Cross in long overdue. The Blues also were attacked in another story in PA. The story gives the cost of the Blue’s insurance,

    “For example, in one plan, the monthly premium cost for a family with two parents in their 30s would rise from $1,069.15 a month to $1,634, a 52.8 percent increase”

    Remember, in PA a 30-year-old couple and 2 children can get HSA insurance from America’s oldest insurance company for less than $300 a month. That includes a 24 month rate guarantee and a decreasing deductible.

    Take the Blue’s special tax status away. Good job Krugman.

    At least Krugman didn’t use the term “Bushie” this time. What was that about winning a Nobel not being a matter of luck? But I suppose it could still be likened to W.C. Fields’s card shark character, when asked “This isn’t a game of chance, is it?” “Not the way I play it, No.”
