Well, I won't speak for the rest of the country, but I sure as hell do! In fact, I care about it more than any other single issue. And of the two viable Democratic presidential candidates left in the running, Hillary Clinton has the stronger policy proposal. More importantly, those who crunch way more numbers than I do say that the difference is significant--and might possibly mean getting what I want versus not getting it at all. Princeton economist and New York Times
columnist Paul Krugman puts it most succinctly
If you combine the economic analysis with these political realities, here’s what I think it says: If Mrs. Clinton gets the Democratic nomination, there is some chance — nobody knows how big — that we’ll get universal health care in the next administration. If Mr. Obama gets the nomination, it just won’t happen.
So. Guess who's rooting for Clinton?
If heathcare matters to you, too, and you're still undecided heading into Super Tuesday, I suggest reading Krugman's column...and taking what he argues seriously. (BTW, the supporting material he mentions in the column, such as the MIT study and anti-mandate attack ad, is detailed at his blog
