For the past few years, I’ve been pushing Senator Ron Wyden’s Free Choice Act as the best way to reform the health care system. Ezra Klein, now of the Washington Post and still no relation of mine (except friend), feels the same way and explains the bill here. This is a solution that promises universal coverage, has been scored revenue-neutral by the Congressional Budget Office (an exaggeration, I think, but it certainly will be significantly less than $100 billion per year), gives significant relief to employers and has bipartisan support in the Senate. So why not?
