The Wall Street Journal is railing against universal health insurance because it has the potential to result in arbitrary cutoffs of medical care due to cost concerns.

Again, mind you, this is supposed to be the reason we don’t want a public system of health insurance.

This is the major problem with the arguments against a single-payer system: they’re the exact same detriments that come with private health insurance, except that the insured have more of a say in fixing those detriments. It obviously must be stopped at all cost.
