"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

DeanCare details by The Bloviator

posted by Aziz P. at Wednesday, May 14, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
The Bloviator has a simple summary of the details of the Dean Health care plan. Drawing on the campaign website datasheet and the coverage in the WaPo, Ross fills in some of the blanks and reveals some details that most observers may have missed (such as the automatic enrollment based on government tax and health record data, which may cause some concern for privacy advocates).

The Bloviator is an expert on health insurance issues - Ross' series on The Uninsured in America is essential reading for anyone interested in the economic impact of having medical uninsured. The series ran during Cover the Uninsured Week (March 10th - 16th) and here are the entries:

This series is well-supported by solid data, and is a resource that we Dean supporters need to be familiar with if intend to defend Dean against charges that universal medical insurance is a big-government boondoggle. I urge everyone to drop by The Bloviator and give that series a read.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
