Can We Pay for Single Payer? [feedly]

I am waiting for Bernstein's take on these numbers. They are pretty compelling. Bernstein has fewer oxes to gore than Baker....but both are pros.

I think the take away is -- one that can bridge, if not unite, disparate parts of the dem coalition -- Medicare for all has a lot of political appeal, but should be cast as "for all" but in multiple steps. 

Dean does mention the impact of the insurance capital strike (3rd biggest resource of US capital) of an all-in-one move that would surely raise the political stakes to the sky.

No doubt we will have to stagger towards universal coverage. Also, as important as health care is,its behind cash and income in the priorities of most working families right now.
