Critical Error: Tom Daschle’s Blurred Health Care Vision

Tom Daschle’s new book, Critical: What Can We Do About the Health-Care Crisis, confirms that advocates for a complete government takeover of American health care have learned an important lesson: Don’t try it in one big bite. Here Daschle and co-author Jeanne Lambrew have direct experience. Mr. Daschle was a Democratic leader in the Senate during the push for “HillaryCare” in the first Clinton administration, and Ms. Lambrew toiled as a health policy analyst in the White House during the second Clinton term. Now President-elect Barack Obama has chosen Daschle for Secretary of Health and Human Services and Director of the White House Office of Health Reform, while professor Lambrew will serve as Deputy Director.
