Test your knowledge about the status quo…

The Education and Labor Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, chaired by California Representative George Miller has put out a useful interactive quiz on our current health care crisis. I confess I got a less-than-perfect score…

The quiz is important in reminding us not just to look at the bills, but the condition of the current status quo in health care.

At TNR’s The Treatment, I joined many much-more disinguished experts in ranking of the Baucus bill. Under the “Truman score” Jon Cohn developed, the Baucus bill got a 6.1 out of 10. In such a life and death issues, my comparison isn’t a batting average but a driving test–and 61% is a failing grade in most circumstances. Jon Cohn promises an evaluation of the status quo, which I imagine will get even worse marks. It reminds us why we health reform is so necessary.

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