Shikha Dalmia had a brilliant column in Forbes last week, reprinted at Reason this week, on “Obama’s top five lies” about health care:

  1. No one will be compelled to buy coverage.
  2. No new taxes on employer benefits.
  3. Government can control rising health care costs better than the private sector.
  4. A public plan won’t be a Trojan horse for a single-payer monopoly.
  5. Patients don’t have to fear rationing.

You can read why you ought to regard these claims as dubious by reading her full column.
