Kaiser reports on Moore in D.C.

U.S. Senators and Representatives got a screening of "Sicko" yesterday on Capitol Hill. Kaiser Daily Report has a fairly dry account.

Kaiser should come over, away from the Dark Side. They belong with us, pushing for single-payer. They're as good an HMO as can be created in our crazed system — relentlessly nonprofit and with better outcomes at lower costs than anyone else. They've taken hit after hit from having to compete with the operations that don't care about patients, and they've had some people themselves who don't care. But in general, they're a decent outfit — astonishingly decent, when you consider how big they are, and how many opportunities that gives them to screw up.

Come on, Kaiser. Go see "Sicko" and come on board.
