Going Down the Same Old Tunnel

Having surrendered in advance to the private insurers and drug companies who profit from our dysfunctional health financing system, President Obama and the Democrats who lead Congress couldn’t rally the American people to support their woeful plan against Republican attacks.

The Democratic plan could only offer unpalatable funding options — stick consumers with ever-higher health costs, raise taxes, or drain money from care.

In the end, the Democrats’ back room deals produced a scheme reminiscent of the ones crafted by Mitt Romney (in Massachusetts, 2006) and Richard Nixon (Washington, 1972) -– but even less effective than those.

A simple single payer program could save $400 billion annually on insurance-related bureaucracy and profits, and tens of billions more by driving down drug prices. That’s more than enough to cover the uninsured and to upgrade coverage for insured Americans, without increasing health spending.

No Booman, you are not a supporter of single payer

Booman, you are an Obama apologist. You have allowed your psychological investment in Obama to overwhelm everything else. So now your blogging consists of ever more contorted explanations of 17 dimensional chess.

Meanwhile support fo single payer continues to grow. All the while you are explaining that single payer is a lost cause, the Pennsylvania legislature is getting closer and closer to passing a single payer bill.

Single payer supporters continue to mobilize and a whole new group of blogs have sprung up to support single payer health care:

How to control health care costs

Pass a Canadian style single payer plan, such as HR 676. But progressive bloggers won’t tell you that. They won’t even fight for single payer in their own state.
