As Amy Goodman notes on this morning’s DemocracyNow!, evidence of the inefficiency of the American health care system and of the efficiency of the single-payer system is now mounting, yet American mainstream media refuses even to discuss the single-payer option. But with the insurance industry imploding and a strong sense of a need for a radical rethink of the health insurance regime, it’s time to fully vet this option.
