Has Bill Roper gone radical?

You might think so from some of the language he’s been using lately. But the truth is that Dr. Roper, CEO of UNC Health Care and former Reagan adviser, recognizes that maintaining a viable health care system will require a major overhaul and shared sacrifices. Of course, when the Health Access Coalition makes the same point we are labeled “leftist.”

The following short video includes clips from his great blog.

    A wise man speaks —— albeit softly—— but loud enough for the Health Insurance Titanic to hear it’s hull cracking!

    When Dr. Roper speaks of the wealthy paying more, he is referring to the single payer solution, whether he wants to admit it or not. So be it, the wealthy will still be wealthy and the rest of us will finally enjoy a true healthcare system. Thanks for your brave candor, Dr. Roper!
