George Will vs Robert Reich – So easy a caveman can do it

On This Week liberal stateist economist Robert Reich contends the reason we need health care (or is it health insurance?) reform is because the American people just don’t understand health insurance. That’s enough to set the normally calm George Will off.The battle lines are drawn when Will contends allowing insurance companies to compete across state lines will immediately bring down premiums, and then has the line of the morning. So easy a caveman can do it?

Update: Welcome readers from Hot Air. Thanks for stopping by.

Maybe so, but not the American people, explains Reich. Insurance companies are evil, and without government control and mandates (i.e. the Federal Government deciding what kind of insurance we all should have) the insurance companies will just dupe us.

That was all Will needed to hear.

Just thought I would throw this in for Reich. Competition!

    Great segment Jim. Will nailed Reich's knee jerk elitism on the spot. Reich believes the common man is too stupid to buy insurance on his own… is the true Rober Reich view of health reform…kill the old speech. ….

    Jim, with how Robert B. Reichhhhhhhhh, doing a Rush Limbaugh here, by what he had been saying, sound so patrionizing. He treats us like we are idiots or worse. Even a cave man can do a better job at doing a Sunday morning tv talk show.

    That's right we are too dumb to understand health insurance but not too  dumb to pay taxes. This health care bill is a tax bill they need to pass it to pay down the debt.

    Mr. Reich is just adding  fuel to the fire with these comments.
