Proof of the partisanship going into health care legislation are regulations designed to eliminate HSAs. (Cato: Attempted Murder of Home Savings Account).
The ideological goal of Obama, of course, is to eliminate any direct negotiations between doctors and patients. All service negotiations must involve a government agent.
This has me sad as the modest expansion of HSAs was one of the few bright lights of the Bush administration.
Establishing a Medical Savings and Loan will be illegal after the passage of the Obama plan, but I think it is worthwhile for people to discuss the doors being shut during the biggest partisan power grab in American history.
