  •  My worries about a Bad Plan.. (0+ / 0-)

    What is HCAN's position on Single Payer? I'm worried that the extremely vague 'public option' is designed to fail..that it may turn out to be a trap because of its inability to do cost control and this clearly impossible "self-sustaining" requirement, I'm worried that it may end up being destroyed by adverse selection and its insurance death spiral effect.

    I'm worried that by not pushing for single payer, Democrats may be opening themselves to a form of blackmail because the numbers don't add up for public option.

    I'm worried about the history of public option, and its author.

    People in this nation die due to lack of health care. The estimates vary from 18,000 to 100,000 a year, depending on how you measure preventable deaths
