Charles over at Two Conservatives has an excellent article regarding the problem with the healthcare industry being caused by the structure of employer health benefits. It’s an excellent analysis of the economic realities created by the demand for employee health benefits. Well worth a read.
This is Judy Feder’s baliwick, as the only experience she really brings to the table as a candidate for Congress is her long experience in healthcare policy as an academic and as HHS appointee under Bill Clinton. That experience can be summarized as taxpayers should be supporting a government health insurance scheme, and we need to pay more in taxes in order to make this “investment”. On foreign policy, economics, fiscal policy, defense or the rest of the spectum of issues, I see no evidence of any qualifications. Given the rhetoric I’ve seen on her website, I’d say she has anti-qualifications on may of these points.
Charles has at least written numerous articles on subjects other than health policy. And his ideas have been a lot more sensible than what I’ve seen coming out of Judy Feder. In my mind, because he’s had more broad experience and not had his mind polluted by liberal academics, Charles is more qualified to run for Congress in the 10th Congressional District. The Democrats should replace Feder, who is an unelectable lefty extremist, with the reasoned and respectable Charles Richley as their nominee.
Makes perfect sense to me. If he dyes his hair again, the dems should love him.
