Newsweek: New Hillarycare 'Bold, but Hardly Radical'
Newsweekâ€™s Jonathan Darman must set a very high bar for what he deems radical.
In the September 17 issue of Newsweek, Darmanâ€™s story, â€śHow She Would Govern,â€ť tried to give readers a glimpse of a Hillary Clinton presidency. The story compared the Hillary of old with the Hillary running for the Democratic nomination and used her health care plan as an example.
Although the plan has yet to be unveiled, Newsweek apparently already has an idea of what it will entail. â€śHer health-care plan, which will be announced in the coming weeks, is expected to be bold, but hardly radical,â€ť wrote Darman.
But, if Hillary Clintonâ€™s own Web site is an indication of whatâ€™s to come, itâ€™s obvious achieving the label of â€śradicalâ€ť would be quite a feat at Newsweek.
â€ś[W]e have to change the way we finance health care,â€ť
â€śSo, we donâ€™t only need candidates to talk about it,â€ť
But expanding a very expensive government entitlement by taking more from personal income isnâ€™t radical to Newsweek. It would certainly be frightening to imagine what is.
