Designing Health Care

"Doctor" Obama was in Albuquerque Monday talking about health care:
"If I were designing a system from scratch, I would probably go ahead with a single-payer system."

(Picture not from that speech.)

Who is he trying to pay back, Teddy Kennedy? As documented on BwD, (which I like to think of as Beers with Dean) when Ted Kennedy was diagnose with brain cancer he availed himself of the finest U.S. technology to get himself cured. (NYT article says the surgeon claimed success.) BwD article futher points out the gross failings of single payer both in Canada (with Canucks traveling south for needed care and in Great Britain.) Once again, Obama's true intentions slip through. Why won't he say it out loud, or other Democrats for that matter, is that they know single-payer is deeply unpopular with the public.
