37. Edwards plan has for profit and public
insurance plans. The choice is left up to the person. The public one will be like what the government employees get, I think (I don't know the particulars of their plan). With the public and private companies going head to head, who do you think will win? This is the only way to get to single payer. The Kucinich plan would be "swift boated" as socialized medicine, and could sink our candidate. This is the only logical way to go.
