Sarah Palin Health Care Editorial

Today, September Eigth in the Wall Street Journal, Sarah Palin had an editorial on health care, which really doesn't say anything different than their last editorial on health care, about which I blogged earlier.

But, from a participatory democracy point of view, Obama has asked Congress to create an independent meeicare advisory counsel and that this will work "outside of 'normal political channels' So here the choice is between those driven by the election process and lobbyists on one hand and unfeeling bureaucrats that are not answerable to anyone.

This reminds me of Obama's speech in which he says that neither insurance company bureaucrats nor insurance companys should "meddle" in heath care.

Of course, the answer is sortition juries and the general public in plebiscite.
