HELP Is on the Way - Krugman

Op-Ed Columnist - HELP Is on the Way -

"....last week the budget office scored the full proposed legislation from the Senate committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP). And the news — which got far less play in the media than the downbeat earlier analysis — was very, very good. Yes, we can reform health care."

Krugman sounds optimistic here. He still says it will be mostly in the hands of the insurance companies but at least even with that he says it will be affordable relative to current projections continuing business as usual. I just wish he hadn't caved and gave up on the possibility of single payer.
