Healthcare for All

A really powerful case for single payer health insurance here from Krugman and Wells in the New York Review of Books.

I find myself nodding my head the whole way through, particularly at the end. It is interesting how "mainstream" liberal interest groups are not interested in pushing for real health care coverage for all Americans. It's left to the more crazy leftists who otherwise would be protesting for things like this to advocate for single payer systems. Thus the idea is taken even further off of the table. Perhaps if normal liberals actually said what they thought, regardless of what big Pharma and big Insurance thought, then we might get somewhere.
