So it is socialism after all

David Leonhardt writes ("In Health Bill, Obama Attacks Wealth Inequality"):

Over most of that period, government policy and market forces have been moving in the same direction, both increasing inequality. The pretax incomes of the wealthy have soared since the late 1970s, while their tax rates have fallen more than rates for the middle class and poor.

Nearly every major aspect of the health bill pushes in the other direction.
Back to the ugly socialism of the 1970s!

(OK, so long as we don't have to go back to the ugly clothing...)
