Health Care Reform
Paul Krugman has this sobering article on health care reform, and it looks like a public option may be off the table, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is A Very Bad Thing. However, I watched the latest Bill Moyer's Journal yesterday, and he had two doctors on there cogently arguing that a single payer health care plan is the only one that can cover as many people as possible and can control costs. This issue is vital, and yet the political will to make single-payer possible is lacking in the politicians. Single payer would get rid of the health insurance industry, and they are spending a LOT of money to see it doesn't happen.
