Furniture Man

Our cartoonist friend, Charlie Loving, left this on my desk last week. It's another edition of the continuing adventures of the unlikely super hero, "Furniture Man."

If you want to know how this is going to turn out, watch the network news some night. Big Pharma is all over the news with their advertising. We'll get a new health plan alright. And, they'll do everything they can to kill the public option. (forget about single payer)

Please don't say "forget about single payer" since it is the only realistic option. There is John Conyers HR 676 and the Kucinich Amendment to HR3200. Remember how impossible things have been accomplished in the past. Are we just worn out? discouraged? disillusioned?

Well yes, but this very blog often ends with the tag line "Hard times ain't quit and I ain't quit." Here are three of the best I have found about why single payer must at least stay on the table. There are dozens more. Don't quit, please. Read these:

Bill Moyers Journal -

Single Payer Benefits All -

Paul Krugman -

Bend it Like Obama -

I agree that single payer is the only option that accomplishes the kind of reform we need and want.

And I didn't mean to say we should quit on it.

The statement was meant to shake us into action.

thanks for your comment Sharron.
