"In his State of the Union speech, the president said the nation has to get control over skyrocketing healthcare costs if it's going to expand coverage. Quite true. Bush should know, having added billions to the tab. His expensive yet inadequate drug benefit for retirees will cost $400 billion over a decade. ... So what does Bush see happening now? His best idea remains on the table-tax credits to consumers who purchase insurance. Trouble is, the president's tax-cutting policies have made it all but impossible to afford meaningful healthcare tax credits."
