Ms Clinton's Health Care Plan

For John, BLUFThere is no free lunch.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I liked these quotes from Bloomberg View on Ms "Clinton's Plan to Mess Up Prescription Economics":
Hillary Clinton thinks drug development should be riskier, and less profitable.  Also, your health insurance premiums should be higher. And there should be fewer drugs available.

This is not, of course, how the Clinton campaign would put it.  The official line is that Americans are just paying too darn much for drugs, and she has a plan to stop that...

I think Columnist Megan McArdle is correct.

Controls don't make things cheaper.  The Soviet Union proved that.  As Bridge players say, "a cheap trick now costs you later."

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
