A inclusive strategy to win…

Paul Krugman of The New York Times talks about the prospect of health reform, and how the dramatic Medicare vote in the US Senate bodes well for the fight–as does the new Health Care for America Now! (HCAN) effort.

Both Jonathan Cohn at The New Republic and Ezra Klein at the blog of the American Prospect report on how the HCAN principles are inclusive of a single-payer solution, and how they advance the single-payer cause strategically. The opportunity to advance elements of a single-payer solution–greatly expanded public coverage; defined benefits; group purchasing power; costs based on what patients can afford rather than how sick they are–is there, if we take advantage of it.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
