The High Cost of Health Care (Part 5)

To those citizens who have been made afraid of the prospect of Government run health programs, probably by private health lobbyists and successful physician-businessmen, I offer that I have been a very satisfied recipient of single payer Government health for over 48 years. First as a member of the military, then as a government civilian employee and now as a retired Medicare recipient. Frankly, if I were young and still working, I would be very worried about future coverage, cost and availability of private health plans offered though my employer.

I ask KPBS to ask Brian Bilbray tonight what form of health coverage he and his family have. If it is not the Federal Employee Health Benefit Program, which is a single payer Government run program, then it is probably a Government subsidized VIP version of the same.
