"I’m from the business community and I’m here to help you," can be translated as "Watch your wallet." Following the lead of Republican governors, major business association have been getting out in front of the health care crisis, and an inside-the-beltway "consensus" is emerging. What does it consist of? Protection of the current health care system, through a requirement that either individuals or employers (or both) sign up with the big private insurers who now dole out our medicine. While the business "community" pushes a fake consensus in Washington, the fight for a just single-payer health care system continue in the states.
