Cost Containment

Cost-containment. It's a topic that comes up pretty regularly when discussing America's health-care system.  It's too expensive here! Medical spending is out of control! Etc, etc.  But when liberal health care advocates talk about cost-containment, they rarely seem to recognize what's really driving up medical spending: medical care, especially that which makes us medical technology's bleeding edge.

The Anti-Huck Club

Not that this was ever in dispute, but the Club for Growth really doesn't like Mike Huckabee.

Folly at the FTC

Looks like the FTC is thinking about stepping in to more strictly regulate online advertising.  Nobody really likes jargon-filled EULAs, but I'm not at all convinced that there's any call for the FTC to get involved.  Let's take a look at the article.

Mankiw on Cap-and-Trade

Greg Mankiw gives us the fundamental theorem of carbon taxation: Cap-and-trade = Carbon tax + Corporate welfare. Got that? It's a tax increase, with some bad subsidies attached. Awesome! And this is the preferred policy for combating global warming, mainly because no one wants to be seen as a tax-raiser (as with a straight carbon tax).  All together now, let's get a chorus going as we sing, "Market based! Market baaaaaased..."

S-CHIP, the Bill that Wouldn't Die

Looks like S-CHIP is dressing up as Michael Myers this year; like the famed horror-movie villain, it just. won't. die.  And it should. But I doubt that will stop Pelosi and the rest of her comrades from attempting to wring out every last bit of political gain from the bill.  No matter what they say, passing the bill isn't their only priority.

The Corner Wonders Why Michael Gerson is Called a Conservative

I'm apparently not the only one who found Gerson's column this morning so irritating.  Over at the Corner, Jonah Goldberg, Mark Krikorian, and Andrew Stuttaford each take turns thwacking him.

Gerson vs. Hayek

Micheal Gerson, in today's Washington Post, says that conservatism is perched precariously between two competing schools of thought.

Taxing, Indeed

Charlie Rangel filled some column inches in the Wall Street Journal defending his tax plan yesterday. He claims that his plan would "stop the middle class tax raid." So it's a boost for the middle class! Right? Well, maybe not. Economist Greg Mankiw says the biggest beneficiaries of the tax cut would be the 3% of earners who make between $200,000 and $500,000 a year.

All Work and No Exercise...

One of the problems people on the right have with health care is looking as if they're defending the current system as some sort of pure, perfect marvel. It's not.  One of the biggest problems that health insurance is currently tied to employment because of the tax breaks employers get on health insurance purchases.  That's leading to some awkward developments, as reported by U.S. News:
