HillaryCare: Asta La Vista, Baby

John Fund notes the similarities between Hillary Clinton's health care proposal and the one pushed this year by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Mr. Fund contends that the similarities result from the fact that some of the same advisers were used by Ms. Clinton and the governor. He also suggests those praising Ms. Clinton's political brilliance in putting forth the proposal should look at the difficulty that Mr. Schwarzenegger has had in trying to move his proposal forward. It never actually found its way into the legislature.

Of course, Mr. Fund might have added that the governor has said that he will call the General Assembly into special session. His doing so creates the enormously ironic possibility that the marginally Republican governor of California will essentially be running a legislative referendum on HillaryCare.
