Medicare Meets Mephistopheles: “Damnably Funny”

The blogger David in DC describes himself as a "Knee-Jerk Bleeding-Heart Liberal-Progressive With a Hyphenation Problem."  He nevertheless offers his praise for David Hyman's book Medicare Meets Mephistopheles:

O.K., how often do you suppose you're gonna get a recommendation from me for a book published by the Cato Institute (a libertarian think tank) and denouncing one of the most important legacies of LBJ's "Great Society" program?...

This book has charts, graphs and endnotes. It's a scholarly work.

But it's also damnably funny.

Check it out.

It's a nice review.  But I think his mom put him up to it.
