Healthcare: Wendell Porter

I'm still somewhat open to alternative solutions, but single-payer does seem the best way to go.

From some news site:
One of the panelists, former Cigna Health Insurance executive-turned whistleblower Wendell Potter, said in his opening statement that if Congress “fails to create a public insurance option to compete with private insurers, the bill it sends to the president might as well be called the Insurance Industry Profit Protection and Enhancement Act.”
Forgive the use of a random-ass site. I just wanted to make sure you saw that I didn't pull reformed smegma-sucking asshole Wendell Porter's quote out of my ass (he's still a putz for his past, but at least he realizes it now). Those guys framed it in a way that explained who he was and gave the quote without requiring me to use ellipses between the two. Now for the PBS interview with the same guy (if YouTube sucks at buffering it, try this instead):




The interview plays like an advertisement, but there are some fundamental points in there that people all too often don't actually consider. More on healthcare in the future no doubt.
