Dean Baker on health-care reform

Yes it's good that folks who didn't have healthcare will now have it and it's good that a "pre-existing condition" (health care speak for a reason to increase our bottom line and increase the stock price) no longer precludes people from being cared for, but there is no public option and the very greed which caused the health-care debacle will undoubtedly only be further motivated by the prospect of even greater profits. Accordingly, Dean Baker's column is right on point. He suggests people taking advantage of excellent medical care and much lower prices in other countries in order to secure better healthcare for themselves.
