The Single-Payer Miracle

Found this quote under the above headline in a newsletter from the Ethan Allen Institute in Vermont.

"The single-payer plan will cut bureacracy, reduce administrative costs, establish a budget, eonforce cost controls, and provide for public scrutiny and accountability. This can be accomplished without creating a new state bureacracy, and without increasing health care spending."

--Cheryl Rivers, 1994

Rivers was a state senator back then and is now running for Lt. Governor. She uses just a few words to explain the magic the market can do when not meddled with. Sounds about right to me.
