The White House never mentions who or why these people are uninsured. In fact, just how would they know how many individuals do or do not have coverage? We already have programs for the very poor to receive free or almost-free medical care. In fact, each state has multiple clinics and practices that do nothing but treat the low or no-income population. Arbitrarily "adding" 32 million people without explanation as to who and why is beyond belief. How about creating an open-market environment across state lines that allows people to craft their own policies and let insurers bid for their business? The only reason health insurance is so expensive is because of the state-run monopolies that we now are forced to buy from. The state tells us what must be on a policy and how many insurers can operate in the state.

Dinak, great post. But you miss the point. The intent of the POS legislation always was and always will be to arrive at a single payer system.
