Matt Miller Health Care Column - The Supreme Court Matters, Matt Miller Edition - Esquire:
"The Republican party has presented no ideas on reforming the idiotic way this country does health-care not only because it doesn't have any, and not only because it wants to cripple a Democratic president, but because the Republican party doesn't believe as a party that there is a problem here at all. Or, at least, a problem serious enough to take action against. There could be 100 million uninsured people in this country. They could be sleeping in Mitch McConnell's freaking doorway, and it wouldn't matter. The situation would not change because one political party in this country as a political party has allowed itself to become deranged. That's why they are able to look at the debacle that is American health-care and treat it simply as a political problem, which was at the root of William (Wrong) Kristol's original memo telling the Republicans to destroy Bill Clinton's attempt to reform. Kristol argued that the reforms should be defeated because, if they succeeded, then too many people's lives would improve and the Democratic party would get the credit. The obvious sociopathy there is what the poker players call a "tell," and what psychologists call "a symptom.""
