So I know I promised that my last post on healthcare would be my final word but apparently I don’t have that kind of discipline. Over at Critical Condition , the healthcare blog at NRO, I have a few more pithy words on the subject. Still trying to construct an account of the public anger directed at ObamaCare that doesn’t begin with the assumption of grotesque ignorance or political obstructionism, I raise some questions about the way health as a subject, always attached to the privacy of the body, naturally resists government superintendence.
