An Appeal to Paul Krugman

Paul, Paul

You have recently expressed rejection of the idea that we can adopt single payer, expand coverage and services and still save lots o' money. 

Please, Please, if you haven't already, read Lewin report 2005 on California Single Payer and any of several of Gerald Friedman's  economic review of several SP plans, including for New York. (And just about every, if not every, SP study done.) They all consistently point out the savings and expansion in coverage and services that you decry as impossible.   Perhaps you have strong economic disagreement with them.  If so, I am sure we would be happy for your insight.
