Here are the best arguments for Single Payer Health Insurance I’ve come across yet:
We’re lucky we have that great journalist, Bill Moyers, around. Here he’s interviewing two strong advocates of Single Payer, David Himmelstein, MD, co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program, and Sidney Wolfe, MD, director of Public Citizen’s Health Research Group.
What chance in Hell does Single Payer have in this country?
I’ll answer my own question. It has NO CHANCE.
So what do we do? Stand with Dr. Dean and go all out for the Public Option. He explains this in the following:
This piece by Bernie Horn convinced me that Single Payer can’t work politically, and that our only option is the Public Option.
Right now, members of congress, including Olympia Snowe in the Senate are watering down the Public Option so that it will end up not being a Public Option. Read Paul Krugman on the Snowe “trigger”.
That’s why we’ve got to Stand with Dr. Dean. Sign his petition!
