National health care

I don't post about politics much (I have other places and individuals to rant to about it when I feel compelled to do so, and some of you have been very nice about ranting right back at me ;)

But I think that this list of myths and facts is worth reading for anyone who isn't already a supporter of single-payer health care. I'd note in particular that this is not the same as the British system of publically-run health care, it would be publically funded. While it is socialist in a sense, that does not imply communist, which in turn does not imply Stalinist (keeping the poor alive via health care or anything else wasn't one of Stalin's major life priorities, if that's not obvious). It's hard for me to see any downside to the proposal made on that site.
