    I've been reading the health care diaries for a while, but seeing Sicko the other day convinced me that it's time for action.  Talking about our health insurance/lack of care horror stories is certainly important, but will not change until we bring these viewpoints outside of this forum in a targeted way.

    I simply don't see any sort of major national reform happening until years down the line, when the situation has gotten completely untenable for the majority of Americans.  I believe the best opportunity for reform lies in heavily targeting one specific state or region, and staging a media/PR battle there.  Given the scale of this site and other progressive blogs, I don't see why we couldn't band together and raise money for a 527 to fight for real health reform in a single state.  Successful reform will have a domino effect nationally.
