Here’s my boss on HuffPo responding to comparisons of the presidential candidates’ health care plans. The general theme:
While the Health Affairs editors may be bending over backwards to look balanced – and falling off their perches in the process – the American public understands the choice between government guaranteeing access to affordable coverage with good benefits from a choice of regulated private or public health insurance and being forced into an unregulated, private health insurance market. Health Care for America Now‘s campaign in 2008 is very simple. We are asking America, with a focus on the next Congress, to decide between those two courses and working at the grassroots level to make certain that quality, affordable health care for all is the first order of business for the next President and Congress.
