A must read on health care reform. . .

And, of course, I hope to read your reactions after you've done so.

The comments, as always, have been helpful, informative and for the most part civil. My mistake was writing from the pragmatic side. I should have followed my heart and gone with a more emotional approach. I believe universal health care is, quite simply, right.
