Universal Health Care

UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE….Ampersand says that if the Democrats play it safe, they’re just going to lose anyway. So we should damn the torpedoes and propose a bold single-payer health plan instead.

Sure, we might lose anyway, but at least we’ll have put the plan on the table and can come back to fight another day.

I don’t know that I agree, but Amp’s post certainly gets to the heart of the matter: is there any chance of beating George Bush with a safe, non-risky strategy? It’s a question worth asking.
