I believe we should take care of the sick and the infirm. I think we do that fairly well. We would probably do it even better without Medicare, without insurance tied to employment, and with a better national market vs. state regulation. That being said, this bill is going to be a disaster and it's line in the sand time. I say this as someone married to a healthcare provider too.
Update: Meagan McArdle on why any central health care solution is likely bad.
