Regarding the term single payer:
It was disheartening to read in Tom Daschles book on the healthcare crisis that a single-payer system would be the best system to provide coverage, reduce costs and ensure quality, however, politically it could not be accomplished.
We need to stop using that term but in principle create a system that achieves the same objectivesso we dont get politically bent out of shape.
