A brief comparison, and a lot of questions, about public education and health care for all:

Is health care for all going to be like public education for all? Will there be high expectations and rigorous accountability? If so, by whom and for whom? Regulation of institutions? Medical personnel?

Will there be promises of money to go along with these expectations? Who will provide it? What will happen when the money isn’t there? Where will the cuts be then? What staff will go? What taxes will be raised? What services will be cut? What corners will be cut? Is there a bailout package that will be prepared when (not if) this happens?

Will this actually improve the current health care situation? For some? For all? Will it be mandated for all? Will we have to keep the same records for every patient at every institution like schools have to do now? How will incremental improvement be measured?

Just something to think about…
