    Very good piece and message.

    Farmer demonizes the governor and legislators who  are trying to solve the structural problems created by 30+ years of progressive democrats.  And as usual, he suggests no solutions to the problems, never mind any realistic or practical solutions.

    This just makes this editorial nothing more than another partisan rant.  Doing exactly what he accuses  his opponents of doing.

    Mr. Farmer accurately describes the GOP effort to roll back the civilization of American health care. 
     
    Facts:
     
    France – ruled by Conservatives – universal health care
     
    Britain – ruled by Conservatives – universal health care
     
    Canada – ruled by Conservatives – universal health care
     
    Germany – ruled by Conservatives – universal health care
     
    Government run health care is not socialist or liberal.  It’s just civilized.

    Here is the policy statement from Britain’s Conservative Party web site:

    “We are committed to an NHS that is free at the point of use and available to everyone based on need, not the ability to pay.”

    Once again, the Republican Party is out of step with history.
