1. Health Care Reform could have been the perfect economic stimulus.
Single Payer Universal Health Care (Medicare for all) would have relieved everyone of some financial burden. And instead of the top-down corporate bailout approach, this would have provided a bottom-up stimulus. And it could have been done with no increase in overall per capita health care spending.

Obama should have gone for exactly this, and he should have taken a strong message to the people who are mostly unaware to this day of the scenario I have just described.
