The people who crafted the Republican ObamaCare reform bill seem to want to help. They promise other reforms will be coming. Trust us, they say, we’re from the (new) government, and we’re here to help.

The people who elected them have heard this before. Can they be faulted for wishing that just once the help would avoid creating new ways for interest groups to become addicted to government spending? That at least one time the help would lower costs and not increase government dependence? MORE
