Early on in the Clinton Administration, my friend’s father found himself on a Washington/Providence shuttle with Ira Magaziner, architect of Hillary’s failed government health care push. In flight, Magaziner was reading the plan put together by the health care task force. He opened to the first page and saw text, but there was nothing on the second page, text on the third page, but nothing on the fourth, and so on. Frustrated, Magaziner shoved it back into his valise with a shake of his head.
“They wanted to run the health care system, but couldn’t even get the plan to do it printed properly,” my friend’s father later remarked.
