Michael Moore supports letting the states set up single payer systems
Democrats must also ensure that whatever bill passes includes a provision enabling states to set up their own single-payer systems. These votes are the true litmus tests of the Democrats' commitment to guaranteeing health care for all, and finally solving our health care crisis.
Nice to see "progressives" whipping for that. Oh, wait...
Moore has a massive takedown of the rest of what's on offer from our Dem leadership as well. Corrente readers are familiar with these issues, so go read, but this point caught my eye:
11. No protection for our public safety net. Public hospitals and clinics will continue to be under-funded and a dumping ground for those the private system doesn't want. Public monies going to hospitals serving low-income communities will be shifted to subsidies for private insurance.
Eesh. That's worse than I remember. Did I miss this one?
