Obama’s Glass House 

Of late, Senators Barack Obama and Joe Biden have been throwing rocks at Senator John McCain’s health-care plan. They have called it “risky,” claiming it would destabilize insurance for those workers who have coverage through their jobs. They have also suggested workers would end up paying more under McCain’s plan.

Both of these claims are not true of the McCain plan. But, ironically, they are true of Obama’s. That the theme of this piece, posted yesterday at National Review Online.
