The choice is between a hugely expensive for-profit oligopoly or a government-run single payer system. We’re going to have to choose eventually.
The alternative to a single-payer health insurance system is a hugely-expensive for-profit oligopoly with the market power to charge high prices even to healthy people – and to charge sick people (or those likely to be sick) an arm and a leg.
Even if Hillary sincerely intends to raise taxes on rich Americans in order to pay for universal child care, affordable higher education, and infrastructure spending, the moneyed interests have the clout to stop her.
One of Bernie Sanders’s most important proposals didn’t receive enough attention and should become a law even without a president Sanders. Hillary Clinton should adopt it for her campaign.

Robert Reich argues that although the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders is not yet over, Sanders' supporters should be prepared to support Clinton in a potential race against Donald Trump.
Robert Reich argues that Trump’s rise suggests a new kind of politics. You might call it anti-politics.
