Larry Kudlow has a facinating paragraph in his recent National Review column column about Howard Dean:
For example, Dean's universal health-care insurance is Hillarycare. It's the same government-paid health insurance that's been a disaster in Western Europe and Canada. And it's the same socialist proposal that was defeated handily in a Democratic Congress ten years ago.In addition to replying that sticks and stones will break my bones but childish name calling ("Hillarycare", "socialist") won't hurt me, it's important to remember that no matter what you thought about President Clinton's health care plan, it was not "defeated handily." It, in fact, was filibustered and never came up for vote. Had it been actually been voted on, it might have passed.
