American Healthcare

I offer two write-ups from The Week regarding the Republican's healthcare replacement bill. The first is has details worth knowing about Medicaid regardless of what happens with this bill, and it also goes into why the bill isn't likely to pass. The second begins with a "it's funny because it's true but please kill me" sample conversation between an American and a Canadian about healthcare. The second article doesn't make the case for its main point as well as i think it should (i.e., it's true that the Republican plan won't actually reform our healthcare system but i don't think they'll care or that that's the fact that would keep it from passing). But it's still worth a read.

Also something from Matt Bruenig, who takes the normal dismissal of what Nordic countries were able to do with their social programs and says the opposite is true: Small populations make it harder to do what Nordic countries do. I like when people say, "Well, they're a homogeneous culture!". I don't even want to know what they think that means.
