Worth Your Time to Go to This Link--Health Care

If you are like me, you receive lots of email messages that you'd probably just as soon not have to wade through.

At times I receive messages loaded with links to this and that publication. I dump lots of those!

Whether or not I run the reference usually just depends on who sent it. Sometimes the subject matter ignites my curiosity and I chase it down. So, at the risk of being zapped, let me share a link with you.

If you are interested in the national health care debate (and my assumption is everyone interested in the urban poor will be), please take the time to read Paul Krugman's essay, "Passing the Buck" in The New York Times (April 22, 2005).

Here's the link:

I hope you'll read it and respond here. In my view much of his argument is irrefutable.

I tried reading this article, but there's only an abstract with a request to purchase the article for $2.95. Is this only happening with me? Just curious.

Ooops! Could be that the time limit on seeing the essay for free has expired! My apologies. Contact me by email on this one if you are really interested.

Great blog I hope we can work to build a better health care system. Health insurance is a major aspect to many.
