Edwards on Hillarycare

It’s almost enough to get me sucked back into actively supporting a Democratic presidential candidate. What’s that, you ask? Well it was Edwards address to the SEIU convention. You can view the whole speech here.

His comment on the Hillary strategy of giving everyone a seat at the table in planning health care was spot on. If you give the insurance companies and the drug companies a seat at the table they’ll eat all the food.

Edwards is the only candidate who is aggressive enough on the health care issue to satisfy me. (Or possibly Kucinich who, if I remember correctly, simply proposes Medicare for all.)
