HEALTH CARE DEBATES?

With Senator Clinton in the race, her earlier views and proposals on health care may well come up in primary debates as well as in a presidential run should she be nominated. Let's hope that we move toward single payer, a la the successful and efficient (compared to private insurance) VA and Medicare systems. There could well be a mix, enabling private insurers to offer special or "gold-plated" plans.

With the concentration provided by a single payer operation, maybe we can, over time, make improvements that will halt the escalating cost of our health care system.

It has always seemed strange to endure a system where, for most Americans, health care service has depended on where a person works.
