Health care how?

A key article on how Kucinich is the only presidential candidate offering a single payer health care system. I don't know if it's the most realistic or how it compares to the other candidates sort of mixed approaches to providing health care for all via govt. and private collaboration, but it is certainly interesting and something I'll personally be checking out. I just can't get past the basic issue of health care as a right that so many are being kept from because of unnecessarily high costs (ie, costs that reflect insurance companies' profits, not simply the cost of the care). I would challenge people to see Sicko, even though Moore has been somewhat imbalanced in previous films, i think for the most part, he does a good job of telling the story of what I think is the criminal state of our health care system.
