Nationalizing appeared possible in a bipartisan way

Avedon Carol in The Sideshow guides us to this item:

America’s Largest RN Organization Says: If We Can Nationalize Banks, Why Not Healthcare? […]” Consider that on the same day our government moved to take over collapsing banks, the U.S. Census Bureau released data that 16 percent of Americans under 65 are uninsured, and in some areas, like south Florida, the number is as high as 30 percent. The news isn’t so great for those with insurance either. Another report out today in the Wall Street Journal, noted that employers are expected to increase co-pays, deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs to workers by more than 10 percent next year. This comes at a time when one in five Americans already self-rations care for which they are “insured” by skipping medications, doctors visits, vaccinations, and other needed care.” And then the insurer weasels out of paying what they’ve already promised.
