THE SENSE of health care déja vu was palpable. During the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association's annual symposium this August in Chicago, Quentin Young, MD, and Rep Barney Frank (D, Mass) debated the merits of a single-payer health care system in this country.
The two-man discussion echoed panels and town halltype meetings from the heyday of President Bill Clinton's ill-fated vision for national health system reform. But the debate between Frank and Young, founder and chair of the Chicago-based Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, was absent the competitive jockeying among special interests that took place during similar debates 5 years ago. On this late summer morning, both arguers agreed that a government-sponsored, single-payer system is a superior alternative to the current scenario of employer-based insurance.
