Hering on Medicare (or, a chance encounter with reality)

It's almost fun to watch him try to squirm and justify his inconsistency:

We have too many laws already. But in the interest of fairness in this connection, maybe we need one more. It would say that in order to practice medicine in the United States, a practitioner must not discriminate against anyone on the basis of government insurance.

Poor, poor Hasso. I can hear the contradictions grinding away in his head:

Medicare = Public.
Public = Bad. [Corollary: Private = Good]

Therefore, Medicare = Bad?


Health insurance = good.
Medicare = the only option for many.

Therefore, public not-for-profit = good?
