Pat Buchanan on O'Reilly supporting Obama's health plans.

It's not often that I agree with Pat Buchanan but I think what he says here is correct. The reason the Republicans fear what Obama is proposing is because they know where it will lead, and I think it will eventually lead to a universal health system not unlike those of western Europe; where some choose to stay in private health systems, but the majority go for the system which is run by the government because it is far, far, cheaper than the private alternative.

Of course, Buchanan thinks that would be a disaster. He still doesn't get the fact that there should be no place for profit in healthcare, and that those making that profit bring nothing of any value to the equation.
