More on Romney Health Bill

The American Spectator runs an article by Shawn Macomber on Romney's Health Bill, entitled "Romney Rolls the Dice". Macomber is wary of legitimizing the government's role in Health Insurance.

THEN AGAIN, SURVEYING THE POLITICAL landscape, is it possible to believe a politician willing to sandpaper the slippery slope enough that we can get the foothold necessary to climb back out of it is coming along? Or are we left mostly to hope a handful of politicians such as Romney will find the closest free-market solution addressing the statist desires of the general populace?

And reader Casey S points us toward a good read in National Review that convinced her to get on board w/ Romney's plan: Mitt's Fit.

Furthermore, to allow people to go without health insurance, and then when they do fall ill expect someone else to pay the tab for their treatment is a de facto mandate on providers and taxpayers. Romney proposes to take that option off the table, leaving only two choices: Either buy insurance or pay for your own care. Not an unreasonable position, and one that is clearly consistent with conservative values.
