Jane Bryant Quinn wrote a good essay on universal health care. But without a really strong leader pushing this, I just don't see it happening. And without it, we will cease to be an economic force in the world, because our health care costs are keeping us from being competitive. I think that this is a way to explain it to the right wingers - since compassion for the sick doesn't work, let's put it in terms they can relate to - corporate profits and America's place as an economic power. See, we can find common ground here!
