Remark of last week

Posted by Eliot Weinstein on June 21, 2009

Last week’s Remark of the Week should have gone to Arnold Kling:

Getting people to reduce their use of medical services is the spinach of health care reform. Expanding insurance coverage is the dessert. The Democrats want to enact dessert now, and worry about spinach later.

Just something to keep in mind as you read or watch coverage of the incipient health care reform bill. Kling’s co-blogger Bryan Caplan adds more here.
