A while ago I sent a letter to Sen. Sherrod Brown expressing reservations about the health care "reforms" President Obama was promoting. He sent me a reply to the effect that the president's plan will reduce health care costs for businesses and individuals, improve quality of care and make health insurance affordable for all Americans.

With the scope of the changes he spoke of, it amounted to a takeover of the health care industry, or about 10 percent of the economy.

I question whether the government can deliver on any of these promises, since they are the ones who have put us into the recession, first with NAFTA and Most Favored Nation status for China, and second by creating the sub-prime mortgage debacle and disastrous foreclosures. If this is the kind of management we can expect, there is no doubt that health care will be worse, not better, if the "reforms" become law.
