From Best of the Web

ObamaCare may be dead, but TV reporter Keith Baldrey, in an op-ed piece, argues that getting health costs under control is still crucial:

Is health care becoming the mortal enemy of our country's education system?

I don't pose this question facetiously. When we're discussing public
services, it's important to remember that at the end of the day, everything
comes down to money.

And it is obvious that health care is increasingly getting that money at
the apparent expense of other public services--most notably education.

In fact, our health-care system's voracious and unending appetite for tax
dollars is crowding out spending in all sorts of other areas.

If only we had a single-payer system like Canada's . . . Oh, wait! Baldrey's article is about Canada's system. It appears in the Surrey (British Columbia) Now.
