Are We Finally Ready to Save Ourselves?

Health Care Status Quo Would Be Disaster for Middle Class

How’s this for a health care plan? It will make your premiums go up—in fact, it will double health costs over the next ten years. It will strip millions of Americans of their coverage. It will send our deficit through the roof.
Government Plan Can Coexist with Private Insurance

I'm going to let myself hope that this time, health care reform will pass. I'm going to let myself hope that everyone's irrational anxieties have been addressed (see the first article, an op-ed), that everyone's ready, that we're going to not only save the country, but wrest health care from CEOs and lobbyists, and give it back to American citizens. A girl's gotta have a dream.
