Americans want a health care system that is uniquely ... Swiss!
From the Wonk Room at Think Progress:
Most notably, Obama has rejected a British/Canadian-like single-payer reform and most policy makers are looking for a “uniquely American solution” that preserves the employer-sponsored system and creates a hybrid public-private partnership. In other words, American reforms would look a bit like the Swiss health system
in which the government “leaves the provision of health care and health insurance in private hands” but creates a marketplace within which insurers can compete on price, and not avoid insuring the sickest patients.
This from the purportedly liberal think tank, Center for American Progress. Do these people ever listen to themselves?
God forbid that Americans should ever get a health care system designed by, and for, Americans.
