At least they are attempting something

Pennsylvania is the latest state to jump on the universal health care coverage bandwagon. I have some misgivings about these plans that seem to require all sorts of tap-dancing around, and kissing up to, private insurers, and health care needs to be portable, not tied to an employer. In this case, if a person leaves the state, I assume they would lose their insurance as well. Again, the problem of portability.

But at least these states are addressing the issue. I'd like to see the Nevada legislature tackle this one. And I still haven't given up hope yet for a national single-payer health plan.
