Health Care Vouchers an Insurance Company Subsidy. Bachmann Touts failed Free Market, Private Insurance Business.

David Sirota clobbers the Washington Examiner's Mark Tapscott over the conservative idea of health care vouchers, correctly identifying them as nothing more than a taxpayer subsidy for insurance companies.

Michele Bachmann is apparently unaware that in the "free market place," which has been around a long time when your talking about health insurance, people with pre-existing conditions cannot get coverage. And in the few states that have high risk pools, taxpayers not only pick up much of the high costs, but premiums are too costly for many pay.

That's why we have over 51 million people without health care. Is she dense? We know the answer.
