Regarding Obama, Axelrod should push single-payer plan:
If President Barack Obama came right out and stated we were going to a single-payer system, his healthcare agenda could be blown up like President Clintons plan. I believe he has the will, but he has taken a different strategy. His approach is to gradually build a healthcare model that may not be called a single-payer system but will function as if it were.
