Obamacare© v?.0: A Quick Update

■ It appears that the president's "plan" does, in fact, include federal funding for abortions.

■ The so-called "grandfather" provision, which was purported to allow one to keep one's current plan, is, in fact, no such thing: the requirements for such plans would render them unaffordable.

■ We haven't really discussed the issue of price controls in the "plan.' While one might consider this a bit odd given our history and theme, it's really not: there's no way to implement it without running up against the brick wall that is McCarran-Ferguson.

Is it dead? Well, we've discussed ZombieCare© before, but I wouldn't be betting the house (or the House) on its passage.
