Defending Health Care Reform in NewSpeak

Another excellent post by Dr. Richard Reese:

The Democratic tactic seems to be: Don’t challenge the facts, change the language or shift the blame…[John] Goodman says: If your health reform policy causes patients’ care to be rationed by forcing them to wait longer for care, don’t call it “rationing,” call it “universal coverage.” If your plan forces physicians to close their practices to new patients, don’t call it “rationing,” call it an “access to care” problem and blame it on the private sector. If your top-down policies create higher premiums and higher taxes, don’t call it bureaucratic bungling, call it lack of “cost-effective care” or lack of “coordinated care.”
