Getting Ahead of the Single-Payer Crowd (top tweets)

You know at some point the fight will be joined over single-payer. It’s been the dream of the Left for a century and the Left never quits. The Truth Squad is collecting stories from all over the world demonstrating why single-payer is a VERY BAD IDEA.  So, when the fight comes, we will have thousands of stories at the ready, thousands of very tall mountains the single-payer crowd will have to jump over.  We tweet these stories most Mondays at 10 a.m.  Here is the latest batch:
