This.

I'm slowly warming to the President's healthcare plan; even though I wish it would take insurance companies entirely out of the picture and go entirely single-payer, I know it's not feasable right now because Congress would laugh it out of the House (and the Senate). So this is the next best thing. And everyone will have access to healthcare and maybe, maybe single-payer will eventually get put on the table.


In related news this:

Special Message to the Congress Recommending a Comprehensive Health Program, by Harry S. Truman.

I find this both amusing and hella frustrating, because ffs, Harry Truman thought the system needed fixing OVER SIXTY YEARS AGO. Amerikay needs to get with the effing program, already.

Harry Truman is my new political hero. He was amazingly prescient and very progressive. People don't know much about him, but omg. After I read Truman, just... wow. I was so sad that he DIED at the end! <333 Harry.

I'm still not so forgiving about the whole atomic bomb thing, but that's not all of who he was, and all. Must read.
