Healthcare Illusions

I just read this on my Starbucks coffee cup:

"One of America's most cherished political illusions is that we all receive the same healthcare regardless of income. Another is that we don't ration healthcare. The reality is very different. A change is needed and we have the power to bring it about."

Dr. John Kitzhaber (also on Wikipedia)

Former governor of Oregon and healthcare reform advocate

Dr. Kitzhaber is the founder of a new movement known as the Archimedes Movement which states in its opening comments a quote from Archimedes:

"Give me a lever and a place to stand, and I can move the Earth."

The Archimedes Movement currently has a draft of a legislative proposal to help address the current crisis in health care. It is currently open for comments.
