John Edwards Releases Universal Health Care Plan

The Editor's Column
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2007/2/6 6:43:39 (2159 reads)

In my recent posting "Universal Healthcare: You're soaking in it" I explained in general terms what I believe a single-payer universal healthcare system is, and how it utilizes the free market to provide the care, while leveraging the power of government to lower administrative overhead and negotiate fair payment to providers as a substitute for insurance companies.

Today John Edwards introduced his plan for Universal coverage, and you can read all about it. (opens as PDF).

I like some of his ideas, but I wonder if it goes far enough, and whether it really saves much money, since it still ends up with a public-private partnership where government pays premiums (if I read it correctly). Hopefully soon, I'll get you an analysis of it, along with a critique. At first glance, I'd say it's a step in the right direction, but I don't think it's as good as *my* plan.

In the mean time, if any of you has any thoughts about Edwards' plan, I'd love to hear them.
