Healthcare May Be Hazardous To Political Health
Fox & Hounds Daily published an editorial by Sherry Bebitch Jeffe of the USC Price School and Doug Jeffe on how politicians must address health care among highly partisan constituents.
The health care system, in America and in California, is far from perfect and a number of fixes and upgrades are clearly in order. Nationally and in the Golden State, there appears to be limited public appetite for a total government takeover of health insurance.
Democrats might want to look at the recent past before embarking on what could be a political suicide mission. The record would show that proposing to turn the health care system upside down is not a prescription for political success.
