First off, the plan doesn't sever the tie between employment and health care, despite Edwards having said that it would just last Wednesday. Good job on the honesty front, Johnnie boy. Anyway, the plan's about as complicated as Hillary care so I won't try to summarize all of it, but here are the key elements:
So basically, Edwards keeps the employer connection and private insurance companies, exactly the two things that need to be ridded from the health care system. And while he's at it, he devises a really complicated plan that will have little public appeal for exactly that reason. Why he doesn't just call for every American to be enrolled in Medicare, which would both be a better system and more politically viable, is beyond me. Then again, a lot of the things that go on in that man's brain are beyond me.
