    the Obama administration’s centerpiece based on private insurance plans is inherently a dysfunctional model that can never achieve efficiency, equity, universality, and affordability for all of us.

    The Senate Bill isn’t worth fighting for. Liberals threw the baby out with the bath water when they agreed to compromise with the insurance and pharmaceutical industries. All that is worth salvaging now would be increases in Medicaid eligibility, some subsidies for the working poor just above the Medicaid income limits, and possibly the end of pre-existing condition exclusions. This whole process was never about health care reform. It was always about health insurance reform, and that was a mistake from the get-go.

    Jonathan, actually this whole process was about the Democrats wanting to control healthcare so they could regulate every aspect of human life not already covered by environmental laws.
