It's all green

Many veterans - particularly David Gorman, executive director of the Disabled American Veterans - oppose the Obama administration's plan to bill insurance companies for the injuries veterans have suffered.

Why? Their opposition is as senseless as opposing the use of income taxes to pay these bills. The important result is that the bills get paid, not where the money comes from. Is the leadership fighting to keep insurance companies safe from democracy?

One upshot: Vets like their single-payer health care. I bet the rest of us would like it, too.
