Bravery, Obama and Health Care according to the San Jose Mercury.

The San Jose Mercury is applauding Obama for his bravery in making health care proposal. What did he do that was so risky? He proposed mandating more federal spending on health care and adding more requirements for businesses to provide health benefits. I can hear the giggling coming over the ocean from 上海. It does have me wondering what would be an equivalent act of bravery that could be performed by a Republican candidate? Perhaps our hypothetical Republican could "bravely" propose that we retain the US flag?

Of course, the major problems of over regulation, malpracticing by lawyers and caps on medical school slots are unaddressed.
