Rich Lowry throws in the towel on Republican ‘Healthcare Reform’, a comment by Political Reporter

Even with the hollow hand-wringing of Rich Lowry, the Heritage Foundation Healthcare, in all its iterations of a ‘Free Market’ answer to Single Payer, i.e. Medicare for all, is destined for failure? Mr. Lowry leads with a whimper, which makes this reader long for the capacity of Wm. F. Buckley Jr., for the production of  stinging invective, at will, even in defeat. The hallowed remembrance of a Burkean Pretender?

The political answer to the Ryan Plan for Healthcare ‘reform’, that Lowry predicts will end in failure, is utterly predictable. Trump will place the blame on Ryan, and utter his infamous tag line: Your Fired! The manufactured cheap melodrama of the small screen is the Trump Way. Trump has one mode when it comes to failure!

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
