Robert Reich on the Public Option

I love how Robert Reich lays thing out. I remain mystified by folks who don't think we have a responsibility as a wealthy, populous nation to provide affordable health care for our citizenry. I haven't blogged about it before now because I get apoplectic just thinking about, and that leads to complete incoherence.

We need this. Now is too late, but it will have to do.

What we face is above all a moral issue; at stake are not just the details of policy, but fundamental principles of social justice and the character of our country.

I agree! I just don't understand why it took them so damn long to put it out there. We wasted so much time on so much silliness.
