Robert Reich echoes (with no prompting from me, natch) the point I was making a few days ago about the moral component in health care reform:
Even a clunky compromise like the ACA between a national system of health insurance and a for-profit insurance market depends, fundamentally, on a social compact in which those who are healthier and richer are willing to help those who are sicker and poorer. Such a social compact defines a society.
The rest of that thought, plus two other key fundamental truths in favor of the Affordable Care Act (for all its flaws) can be found here. Give it a read.
