Healthcare Reform, Neither Real nor Free
Also today, word is that Healthcare reform is on the way to the floor with significant and far-reaching provisions. How the single payer option is dealt with in the draft form of the legislation is pretty key to all of this. The work required to watchdog this piece of legislation will be immense. The lobbyists will swarm it as soon as it gets out of the gate.
So to the idealist, there's electoral justice on the way - and a single payer, universal healthcare plan in the works. Good news, right?
