He can't keep quiet anymore

When “healthcare reform” fails, and it will

When premiums go up, or when employers start dropping health coverage for their employees, or when state budgets dry up due to the expanded mandates, and the Democrats need an excuse or a scapegoat, what will the argument be?

Reihan Salam anticipates the answer:

You can see it as an inevitable consequence of the fact that the legislation was, as liberal wonks insist, a “moderate Republican bill,” one that true progressives supported only very reluctantly. So to fix the legislation, we’ll need to spend more money, further centralize the system, and impose tighter regulation and control. And if that doesn’t work, well, clearly we need to spend still more money, centralize the system even more, and impose even tighter regulation and control. Wash, rinse, repeat.

The answer is always the same.
