The problems in the current health care debate became apparent early on, when single payer advocates were excluded from participation. Part of that was certainly due to the fact that single payer challenges the logic underlying the entire health care reform effort: if we really cared about cutting costs and providing the best health care services, single payer would come out on top by every measure.
One can only hope that the exclusion won't be happening any more.
Although I do note the "lack of agency" in "became apparent."
Hey, if the fundraising and whipping to get us health care works better than fundraising and whipping to force us to buy junk insurance, I'll be happy!
