Krugman favors Clinton's healthcare plan
See his post here. He reiterates several of Clinton's debate points. Single-payer isn't politically feasible given huge regressive obstruction. Even though he agrees that the increased taxes on the middle class would actually save them money by elimination of co-pays and insurance companies, it's still a tax increase and a hard sell. And the disruption caused by starting over would be another hard sell to the public. He agrees with what Sanders says about single-payer; it's just not going to happen.
