Lanhee Chen: Democrats Push Single-Payer Health Care Plan

Democrats this week are holding a hearing to discuss legislation that would impose a single-payer, government-run health care system on every American.

Not only do they want to take away the health care you have and like, but they want to put government bureaucrats in charge of your medical decisions—all while putting an end to the innovation and dynamism that has made the American health care system the finest in the world.

There’s also a strong argument to be made for peremptory dismissal—think of it as a motion for summary judgment.

Whatever course Leader McConnell takes, he should take care to not legitimize this sham impeachment.
