• Single payer: Not so politically infeasible

    Did I write that single payer is politically infeasible? Yes, I do believe I did, and more than once. (Extra credit to readers who find links to old posts.)

    I was wrong. It still may be a long shot and/or a long way off nationally. But I think I need to update my thinking on how feasible it may be, from “not gonna happen” to “much more likely than I thought.”


    • “Medicare for all” would be very popular. The problem is that popularity and rationality have nothing to do with national politics or politics in most states. Vermont has a number of unique features.

      But we can hope!
