Health insurance

From, a liberal Web site that I find sympathetic about half the time, a piece on single-payer health care, written by Amy Goodman for King Features:
As the media coverage of the Democratic presidential race continues to focus on lapel pins and pastors, America is ailing. As I travel around the country, I find people are angry and motivated. Like Dr. Rocky White, a physician from a conservative, evangelical background who practices in rural Alamosa, Colo. A tall, gray-haired Westerner in black jeans, a crisp white shirt and a bolo tie, Dr. White is a leading advocate for single-payer health care. He wasn't always.

Read it all here. When even doctors are plumping for single-payer insurance, you have to hope that it's finally arrived as a genuine possibility. It's a testimonial to the power of the insurance corps and big pharma that we are the only major industrial nation without a national health insurance.
