Single payer health care - Updated

With the amount of lobbying going on by the health insurance industry and Obama's apparent willingness to accommodate them, I don't have a whole lot of hope that Congress is going to deliver a particularly useful health insurance reform package. As far as I'm concerned, the only real solution is to get the insurance companies pretty much out of health care altogether. Single payer would be the most efficient and cost effective.

The good news is, the fight really hasn't even started yet so we still have time to lobby Congress ourselves. Towards that end, taking this one minute video viral would be a big help. It's a good message. A uniquely American solution. Medicare for all - everybody in, nobody out.

I haven't looked at them all yet, but they have a whole series of them that would be worth passing on to spread the word. [via]

Update: Thanks to commenter Time for passing on a link to this series on single payer by Dr. Behzad Mohit at HuffPo. So far he's posted part one and part two. Check for updates here.
