From the prof mindless linking:
“I think the governors would all agree that what we don’t want from the federal government is unfunded mandates,’’ said Governor Jim Douglas of Vermont, a Republican who is the group’s incoming chairman.
(so what they want is the feds to pay for it. Sounds like single payer to me.)
Although many governors said significant change was needed, . . .
(don't forget this preface to their comments.)
The governors said in interviews and public sessions that the bills being drafted in Congress would not do enough to curb the growth in health spending.
(again, like I have said, they didn't do too much, but did too little.)
I agree with them, a single payer system would do more. The bill did not go far enough.
