Health care according to the candidates

From my inbox today:

“The editors [of the New England Journal of Medicine] asked the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees, President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, to describe their health care platforms and their visions for the future of American health care. Their statements follow.”

Mitt Romney’s piece felt (to me) like a lot of telling me what you’re going to do without actually telling me what you’re going to do.

My favorite line from Obama’s article: “Supporters and detractors alike refer to the law as Obamacare. I don’t mind, because I do care.”

The downspouts of gutters are not ideal places to stash your nut collection, especially when the downspout is clogged.
