A single-payer option for NC?

http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0910/p09s03-coop.html is an interesting article providing insight into possibilities for states such as Vermont and California to consider single-payer health care plans in order to save their state budgets. Perhaps such a change could happen in North Carolina as well, if it were touted as a great states' rights agenda piece. And it would save money to boot. Why move north or west? Stay home and make change!

Thanks for that link

I've been in favor of a government buy-out of Blue Cross for a long time. Just link the pay out to hitting clear performance targets over the next 20 years and turn the non-profit into a self-funding government agency.
