SQUARE ENOUGH CIRCLES AND YOU'RE LEFT WITH SWISS CHEESE:

Democrats Pose Health Bill Hurdle (NAFTALI BENDAVID, 11/06/09, WSJ)

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu says she generally backs President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul efforts. But she'd like to see a few items in the bill before voting for it, including bigger federal Medicaid payments for her home state of Louisiana, extended health coverage for her pet cause of foster children, and help for teaching hospitals in her state.

While pushing more spending in those areas, Ms. Landrieu also wants the plan to cut the overall amount the nation spends on health care.


It's only been 10 months, but Democrats have never gotten past the threshold question: is their health care reform supposed to cover more or cost less?
