Steven Greenhut on Arnold's Health Plan

I've posted at length about California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's universal health care plan (here and here), but Steven Greenhut's column for today's Orange County Register deserves a read as well.

One of the craziest pieces of Arnold's plan is taxing doctors (via their income tax) and hospitals to help pay for the plan. Last week one columnist (which one unfortunately escapes me at the moment) asked if in future we should tax grocery stores to pay for food stamps, and one could carry that "logic" on and on.

Lest non-Californians be tempted to ignore this story, keep in mind that if this passes in California, the nightmare could be coming to your state next...
