POLICY: What is it that we wonks argue about?

Tom Hillard — a new contributor over at the transmuted SignalHealth (which is in someway an offshoot of John Rodat’s Health Signals New York) — has this beautiful line about the managed competition versus single payer argument.

For aficionados of universal health coverage, arguing over competing models is a zestful yet strangely abstract pastime, kind of like theologians debating over who takes out the garbage in heaven.

Or as they say in Australia, at the moment it feels like we’re two fleas arguing over who owns the dog.
