Health care reform is dead! Long live health care reform!

The drumbeat has been low and steady for a long time now, but it's getting louder and more insistent: single payer, Medicare for all, Canadian-style national health insurance just is not politically viable in the US.

It is cheaper and more efficient, so the real problem is the loss of political contributions from insurance companies.

They only people will be adversely affected by Medicare for All are health insurance companies. Patients, doctors, hospitals, labs, taxpayers, will all be better off knowing that health care will be available and paid for.

and the politicians that bring us medicare for all will be heroes, though it might take few years for that to get noticed.

Health insurance lurks at the bottom of so many of our economic woes. Fix it - and shazaam.

yes, it seems so obvious to me, why is it so hard for other people to see this? health insurance in its present incarnation just needs to go the way of the buggy whip.
