Des Moines County looks at single payer, will Grassley listen?
As an incentive for employees to choose early retirement, Cahill said the county is debating offering an extension of the single payer health care premium until the retiree qualifies for federal health benefits.
Of course what he really means is a public health insurance option as single payer means there is only one payer. Its economies derive from the administration savings that are available only to single payer systems. Still, this tells us that the single payer option is being internalized by the pubic, and is politically feasible. The only thing standing in our way is PhRMA and the health insurance parasites.
