Regarding Obama, Axelrod should push single-payer plan:
Single-payer plans eliminate competition for customers, which we should have learned by now results in decreased services as well as decreased quality. Look at the many examples of areas where there has been no competitioncable companies where large areas had no choice, telephone companies and utility companies. When competition came into those arenas, the whole landscape changed. We need competition in the healthcare industryin all areas. Human nature behaves differently when we know the customers have no choice but to come to us. When they can choose to go somewhere else and we will lose their business, attitude, service, innovation, creativity, all improve the product the customer receives.
