The Big Dog’s got the scent. Democrats should pay attention.
 
For all his faults, Bill Clinton has one of the best noses in politics. And this week he gave Senate Democrats exactly the right strategy for passing health-care reform:
 
It’s the economy, stupid.
 
That is, reform will help the economy by slowing down rising medical costs and covering uninsured Americans.
 
For all his strengths, President Obama hasn’t made the economic case yet. Here’s one time he should listen to Bill.

    Gary if the bill was going to lower health care costs I would be behind but so far it hasn’t. None of us have read the damn thing and yet we have strong opinions one way or another. Public option or not we haven’t come close to solving the problems. I said a long time ago that if the government wanted to take over something it should be mal-practice insurance. Subsidizing cost for rural Doctors. You could even trigger it to cause more regulation if it didn’t work. At the same time you could limit lawyers to making only 10% for class action lawsuits and 33% for individual representation plus costs. Victims are being victimized out of the money that they deserve.
