healthcare, and the candidates' answers for it

Here is a great article by Ezra Klein in The LA Times outlining the difference between the Dems and Reps' health care plans. Klein's diagnosis:
On each side, the plans are basically united. The Republican plans make you pay more for your healthcare so you'll buy less. They do this by weakening the protection that insurance offers from health expenses. The Democratic plans bring everyone into the system, then use that leverage to reform the insurers and extract savings through efficiencies of scale.

You read that right: the GOP candidates think the problem is that you have too much health insurance.
