Newspaper editorial outlines track to universal health care

Check out the Baltimore Sun's editorial on universal health care.

The author, James Burdick, takes a different tack on the Supreme Court decision. This Johns Hopkins surgeon sees the court's focus on the mandate as a tax as a positive move. He sees it as a means toward developing true universal coverage.

As he points out, even conservatives recognize the federal government's unlimited constitutional power of taxation, so there is little chance the court could ever find such activity unconstitutional.
