Healthcare Reform: Should Obama Have Fought for Single-Payer?

Hosted by

Healthcare Reform: Should Obama Have Fought for Single-Payer?The US Supreme Court opened a new session today with an unexpected challenge. The Obama Justice Department has asked that it resolve differences between lower courts on the President’s controversial healthcare reform, specifically the mandate for all Americans to buy health insurance whether they want to or not. What could that mean for next year's elections?  Is a "single payer" plan providing "universal coverage" still a live issue after all?
