Required Reading

Krugman again on the baffling lameness of our media, in this case focusing on Giuliani's lies about health care.
Memo to editors: If a candidate says something completely false, it’s not “in dispute.” It’s not the case that “Democrats say” they’re not advocating British-style socialized medicine; they aren’t.

I have to say....this is one issue I am confused on. I'm not really sure the difference between what the Democrats want, and socialized Healthcare. I'm not opposed to it.....just don't get it.

The best condensed Q & A I've found about the proposed plans is here: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/homepage/story/19793.html

None of them is suggesting a "single payer" plan (http://www.pnhp.org/facts/singlepayer_faq.php), although many Dems do support that.

And you should for sure see "Sicko."
