Shadowfax with more excellent analysis. Certainly seems more appealing than California’s recent reform proposal:
I do not know whether this bill has a chance of becoming law — certainly the odds are stacked against it. But it is the first proposal for health care reform I am familiar with, which does not seem to contain any lethal flaws. It achieves much of the goals of a single payer system without threatening to impose a socialized healthcare system. It is not perfect, but, more importantly, it is attainable.
