ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Your coverage of the ills of the known health care plans has been excellent and noteworthy for highlighting particularly onerous yet vague (intentionally?) aspects of it. What seems to have escaped attention is the role of unions in a nationalized health care system.

Has the public already forgotten what unions did to the automobile industry, where workers were paid not to work? Or are people ignoring the awful effect unions have had on our children’s schools, where teachers unions fight to keep incompetent and even criminal teachers on school payrolls? An unqualified, substance-abusing or criminal doctor treating patients is a scary prospect. It would be abhorrent if that were to happen merely because of union contract protections.
