Health Care for All
Today's Diogenes Award--presented sporadically to the person or persons who holds the cold light of reason to official lies, foolishness, and to urban myths and legends--goes to Steffie Woolhandler and David Himmelstein of Cambridge Hospital and Harvard Medical School for exposing the utter lunatic bogosity of the Massachusetts "universal" health care bill--the one requiring people to buy insurance--in today's tompaine.com. In so doing, they make the case for a single payer health care plan, citing the numbers, chapter and verse. We are facing another case in which the federal government--not to mention state governments--in thrall to big business is operating in direct opposition to the desire and best interest of the majority of people.
