John McCain's health care plan

Paul Krugman, a Princeton economist, on John McCain's idea to further privatize health insurance -- deregulate it to make it more like the financial markets.

McCain, as chair of the Senate Commerce Committee, oversaw the widespread deregulation that he has complained about this week -- when he hasn't defended it.
