Michael Bloomberg bought his way onto the debate stage, but people still don’t buy his plan for the country

Mike Bloomberg is gearing up for his second Democratic presidential debate after the first one didn’t go so well. For those of us watching, it will likely be another opportunity to watch his opponents tear into him, and the debate on healthcare will once again really be a debate on the same bad ideas wrapped in slightly different packaging.
Unimpressively, Bloomberg’s grand solutions to our nation’s healthcare problems are an expansion of Obamacare and a new public option akin to “Medicare for all,” or something that would inevitably lead to it.
What is interesting, however, is that we’re debating the merits of socialized medicine in our corner of the world, and over in China we’re seeing the full force of it.
