I've been saying over and over again that Obama's primary interest in the health insurance issue, is the same one he has for every other area of American enterprise: he wants the revenue streams that flow into private sector businesses to flow into the federal government instead.

The Washington Post: Yesterday, Barack Obama was God. Today, he's fallen from grace, the magic gone, his health-care reform dead. If you believed the first idiocy -- and half the mainstream media did -- you'll believe the second. Don't believe either. Conventional wisdom always makes straight-line projections. They are always wrong. Yes, Obama's aura has diminished, in ...
