    John McCain wants to do for your health insurance what he’s done for the financial industry:

    Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.

    Yes, that deregulation of the banks has worked out quite well.

    But I’m sure, this week, McCain is all in favor of regulation of healthcare.

    Riiiiiight. Because doctors aren’t beholden to private insurers or pharmaceutical companies.
    Because insurance rates aren’t rising while coverage is dropping. Because insurance companies don’t play the “preexisting conditions” game, thus making it impossible to switch coverage.
    Let’s be clear. The competitive market only works when people have the choice to switch. People don’t like their airline or cell phone plan, they switch. People don’t like their insurance plan, they’re usually stuck.
