Norman Solomon on Health Care

"Fund Health Care, Not War"

Here are Dr. White's two key conclusions in his own words:
  • "Until we remove the motive of profit from the financing of health care, we cannot and we will not resolve our current health care crisis."
  • "Any group that proposes reform policy that maintains the use of for-profit insurance companies in a so-called free market is being driven by one single motive -- to protect the golden coffers of their share of the $2 trillion cash cow!"


Americans are positively inured in "free-market" idealogy. I wonder what it will take to ever break them of their costly and outmoded ways.
