Something's gotta give

From the New York Times on President Obama's health care proposal:
"Broadly speaking, he wants to extend coverage to the 45 million uninsured while lowering costs, improving quality and preserving consumer choice." I have a question: aren't lowering costs and improving quality ipso facto directly opposing goals? This seems too much like vodoo economics (if you don't recall what that it is, remember: cut taxes, increase spending, but voila, no deficits)!

The only relevant goal of a health insurance plan should be the best care. Cutting costs is just not as important. A little more spending on health care is fine with me. We can cancel farm subsidies anytime if we need more money.
