Is That What I Said?

Sorry, I seem to have deployed some confusing sarcasm with this post. Here’s how the Kansas City Star‘s Prime Buzz characterizes it:

Musings from Brian J. Noggle contends that cutting the most expensive people from the public health care rolls is not a solution.

Allow me to be clear: The solution is to cut them all and allow the free market to bring prices down. If people cannot afford it, families and charities cover. Government programs will eventually either tax the citizenry to death or have to use faceless and blameless bureaucratic means to cuts costs, which means denying health care to expensive cases.

Cutting the most expensive people from the public health care rolls is a solution. An efficient government solution that actually replicates the practices of the private industry it’s trying to replace.
