It is written on Edwards website, "Over time, the system may evolve toward a single-payer approach if individuals and businesses prefer the public plan."
Edwards provides no details regarding the public portion of his plan making this statement specious. Edwards plan as well as the health care plans of Clinton and Obama are basically health INSURANCE plans. All three candidates were asked at the AARP debate whether they supported a single payer solution. All the candidates answered no.
The main premise of Sicko is that the single payer health systems like the ones in Canada, England, France and Cuba are better for the people than the private insurance health care system of the United States. Today there will be a debate of the Democratic candidates and not one candidate will be advocating for single payer health care.
Where is the outrage?
