Health Care,  Stateside

What’s wrong with this picture?

The same thing that’s wrong with a US Chamber of Commerce-sponsored attack ad aimed at Virginia Democratic congressman Tom Perriello, who voted for the health care reform bill that President Obama signed into law.

“Government run health care. Medicare cuts. Have you had enough? Tell Congressman Perriello, stop hurting Virginia families.”

Can you guess what it is?

As Jonathan Chait of The New Republic writes:

To the extent that even conservative voters have expressed a backlash against health care reform, it has largely expressed itself in the fear that their socialized medicine will be reduced in order to provide for others, rather than in any principled opposition to big government.
