VALUE-FREE QUESTION: IF WE HAD UNIVERSAL HEALTH INSURANCE.......

.......Would Cook County Need a Public Hospital (Stroger)?

Given that Stroger Payroll is the biggest reason given for the proposed Euro-style tax increase in Cook County, this would be interesting information to have.

On the contrary, the corruption and waste is just one reason we should never have government run health care.

Great contribution but that wasn't the question.

Freaking astonishing!

All the great policy thinkers who drop in here and nobody's interested in the impact, good or bad, on universal coverage on local government's provision of poverty relief services.

Sheesh!

My God, this is disappointing.

I know I have some Chicago readers. This is a fairly critical point in places like Denver, Chicago, NYC, Baltimore and Cleveland. Perhaps somebody can address the cost-shifting from local infrastructure to private market.

Or Not.
