Americans Abroad with Canadian Health Care: Can't Go Home
Commenter Kat at this Matt Yglesias post on Think Progress posted a link to her video on the good and the bad of having Canadian health care. The good: no bankruptcy, no run arounds, no denials of care. The bad: She misses living close to her family, especially as her parents are growing older.
Matt responds to Jon Cohn who laments progressives are not more active in support of...uh...the Obama health care...uh...something...or other.
...those most full of passionate intensity on the other side are basically prepared to oppose reform sight unseen. But without knowing much about what the content of “reform” is or who it is who’s backing “reform” it’s hard to know what to say about it. At the moment, progressives are simultaneously trying to impact the shape of “reform” (reasonable public option, reasonably generous subsidies and minimum benefits packages) while also trying to push for “reform” to win out against the opponents of “reform.” (My emphasis)
Matt does seem to think he knows what the plan should be--and is missing that it must be Medicare for All.
MEDICARE FOR ALL...with a Robust Private Option!
