Freddie Med. Never has a phrase better summed up the danger of Democratic plans to have the federal government run the health care system.
What Freddie Mac did for mortgages, Freddie Med will do for health care: A politicized system in which political correctness and social engineering takes precedence over fiscal and individual responsibility, tainted by cronyism, sweetheart deals, and political insider corruption.
Freddie Med. I wish I had thought of that phrase, but I have to give credit to commenter MarySue of Ruby Slippers, a brand new blog. (The Wall Street Journal ran an editorial using “Fannie Med” but MarySue beat them to the punch by at least a day; per Mary Sue’s comment below apparently Allahpundit was the first to use it, figures. Whoever used it first, it’s great.)
Freddie Med. Coming to a doctor’s office near you, if Barney Frank and Chris Dodd have their way.
