Nancy Pelosi says there are three reasons the Democrats took back the House: Health care, health care and health care. She may be right. Half the Democratic TV ads were on health care. By one estimate, Democratic candidates spent a reported $90 million on health care ads alone.
If nothing else, they have really promised to do something about health care. So whats their plan?
To find out I went to a site called A Better Deal, which is maintained by Senate Democrats. This site tells you what you would expect to happen if the Democrats had captured the Senate as well as the House.
So lets start with the 28 million Americans who have no insurance at all. What does the site promise to do about that? Nothing. Nothing? Theres not a word on the subject. What about Obamacare premiums that are two to three times what they used to be? Not a word about that either. What about sky-high deductibles that are causing people to skimp on needed care? Zero. What about narrow networks that exclude the best doctors and the best hospitals? Zilch. What about half the counties in the country having only one monopoly insurer and no competition? Nada.
