Best on Health Care
Froma Harrop's column in the Seattle Times today is the best I have seen on the necessity of universal health care.
"Really, how did American workers become the last people in any industrialized democracy to be subject to such anxiety about paying for medical care? They already fund the health care of retirees, the poor, the disabled, convicts and government employees, including members of Congress. Their taxes pay for everyone's health care except their own."
