A couple videos...

First, the case for Single Payer. A little simplistic, sure... I know, I know... the cost of fraud, loss of innovation, rationing... yada, yada, yada. As means of introduction, most physicians back single payer for a variety of reasons that I'll go over in the next post.

The second video shows Sen Al Franken talking down an angry mob (as angry as it gets in Minnesota, I suppose). Note that he is not advocating single payer, but instead a regualated market of non-profit insurance companies. He states near the end of the video that Minnesota does not allow for-profit health insurance in the state, which helps explains their relative low cost... I did not know that.
