Roy: Single payer system is path to universal care
At the end of a long presentation outlining new services, new doctors, new facilities and a growth in income this year at a rate greater than the growth of the economy, Dr. Kent Palmberg, the unusually savvy and successful senior vice-president and chief medical officer of Stormont Vail HealthCare, sighed and quietly said, "I'm not sure where all this is going, but we'll probably end up with something like Medicare for all."

I am unfamiliar with Kansas politics, so what I have to say on this is pure speculation, but I always find it the most cynical of acts when someone who has long been in one party and is deep within the party decides to change parties. It always seems opportunistic and it is inevitably proven so.
