« Obama's approval drop not surprising | Main | Disturbing growth in "birther" movement »

I give Obama credit for winning the battle of the name. Health care "reform" automatically implies "the improvement or amendment of [health care that] is wrong, corrupt, unsatisfactory, etc." (Def. 1 in dictionary.com)

Opponents are now trying to substitute "reckless experiment" for the word "reform." I think the substitute is at least as accurate. However, IMHO the opponents have lost this battle. Health care "reform" is the widely-accepted, official name.

I've found David Leonhardt's columns to be startling fresh. See especially his article on the budget deficit, and his previous article regarding health care rationing. It's good to see some journalists who are willing to call a spade a spade.

Plus, he's willing to call a Bernie a snot.
