Intellectual consistency

Who am I to call for consistency of thought? I can’t keep my mind on the straight and arrow for a day, let alone a lifetime of policy decisions. Still, I got a kick out of a line I read in an article this weekend (I can’t for the life of me remember which one). The author of the piece said that conservatives against “socialized medicine” didn’t understand that we already have it… for old people (Medicare) and government employees… such as Republican Congressmen and Senators.

If conservative opponents of “socialized” medicine believe in private insurance so strongly, maybe they should put their health where their mouth is.

Give the gift of words.
