Senator Warner Says: Obama Blew It On Healthcare Reform

More candor tonight from another ObamaCare supporter:

"Freshman Sen. Mark Warner, Virginia Democrat, said Tuesday that President Obama has misplayed his attempt to reform U.S. heath care by focusing on insurance coverage instead of explaining that the current system is headed toward a financial meltdown.

"I wish the president would have started the debate by explaining to the American people that our current health care system is not financially sustainable, for even another decade," Mr. Warner said. "Driving down health care costs should have been the focus of the debate."

Assuming that Obama's real goal was, in fact, to "drive down health care costs," he would have been wise to take Warner's counsel. But that assumption is a false one.
