EVEN MORE REASON FOR DEMOCRATS TO HATE THEM:

Wal-Mart looks forward and back at health care (Timothy Goddard)

Wal-Mart is opening more 50 health clinics in their stores, adding to the nine started in a pilot program mainly in the Southeast. This could be the start of something remarkable–if Wal-Mart can begin applying the same downward price pressures to medical prices that it has applied to goods in general, then it could be the beginning of a trend that finally halts the long upward march of medical prices.

Y'know what they should do next that would make the Walmart-haters heads really explode? They should start their own schools. Children of employees get in free. Tee-hee.

Actually one of the Walton brothers, who has now passed away (plane accident) was a heavy investor in profit-making private schools.

b. Excellent idea. I'll bet it's already on the drawing boards.
