It's all over the blogosphere. Glen Whitman has the best take on it because he ackn0wledges the slippery-slope, camel's nose-in-the-tent factor.
What's next after mandating health insurance for all? How about: the kind of health care we must have, who must deliver it, how it must be delivered, at what price, and on and on into the night. It's a poisonous prescription for America's still-excellent -- if already somewhat socialized -- health-care industry.
And there's nowhere left to turn. Canada's out because it already has fully socialized medicine. (Canadians in search of better medical attention are coming here, for crying out loud.) Mexico's out because it's a third-world country with fourth-rate health care and quacks who cater to desperate, terminally ill Americans with more money than sense. Medicine on the Moon, anyone?
P.S. A good post here.
