Universal health care

Blogger is bloggered again tonight (you get what you pay for, I guess), cutting down on the posting (or multiplying the content, depending on how you look at it). But a bill has been introduced to give health care to all Minnesotans. It's not going anywhere this year, but the fact that it has been introduced, and has bipartisan support, is interesting.

This is going to happen eventually. We can't afford double-digit increases forever and Medicare will become a crisis long before Social Security. I do think, however, that this should be a nationwide thing, not necessarily just a Minnesota thing. We already get screwed when it comes to giving the federal government more than we get back, so paying for health care for all of our citizens while also paying for the citizens of Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas is a bit unfair. If we do have a plan like this, perhaps we could withhold our federal taxes too until the rest of the country came around.
