18. After reading a little and thinking about it it seems to me that we might want a topix
forum as well as what's called a protected group.

I would prefer to have a forum where people who are opposed to single payer can come and learn perhaps. ANd visa versa.

That might be called the great health care debate.

In some ways what we need is both a protected as well as a general topix style group for Single payer.

And proponents of hybrid patchwork systems can have there own protected group as well if they like. And we can debate the merits of the different plans in a topics forum much like we do now in general discussion.

OK. What we need first is a protected group to organize to get a general health care reform Topix group.

The Obama campaign is strongly pushing the issue of a national dialog on health care reform. I think we should ask DU to help on this topic as well as it has on other topix, like energy and environment.

The "health" topic currently is often mostly devoted to remedies, research, and such and not to the topic of systematic reform.
