in Yes, We Can All Be Insured. Nice to see some MSM writers for the masses telling it like it is. Finally.
One thing I'd like to see: on those waiting times that we're so much better at than everybody else, is anybody figuring in those of us, the uninsured, who are just going to have to wait forever?
That's what I thought.
Interesting article in that same issue on Express-Lane Medicine.
Some doctors are complaining that walk-in clinics at grocery stores -- I [heart] HEB -- will, among other evils, fragment health care. Ha!
And the free-marketeers are going to go batshit happy over the fact that market forces are solving a pressing problem here [they are]. What those people aren't going tell you [or themselves] is that dispensing antibiotics for sinus infections is easy, quick, and cheap, but this model isn't going to be expadable to the big stuff, cancer, heart transplants, the like, unless everyone has upfront all the dollars they'll need before they walk in. The only way to do that of course is some version of Medicare-for-All.
