It’s October, and the health care debate presses on. Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee joined Republicans to vote down the so-called “public option”; meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has adamantly come out stating that health care reform indeed will take the big step toward a government takeover.
Against this backdrop of events are two great new columns you should read:
- My Independence Institute colleague Jessica Corry writes for Human Events on the human cost of Canadian socialized medicine
- Dr. Paul Hsieh eloquently explains “the real stakes” of the national health care debate in a new Denver Post piece
Just two of the many Coloradans speaking up loudly and clearly for individual rights and medical sanity — of course, don’t forget to continue checking out the Patient Power blog, too.
