If the thought of a universal health plan conjures images of the Clintons' 1993 failed attempt at health reform, you're in for a pleasant surprise. The concept recently received a boost when thousands of doctors backed a universal health plan proposal published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

The proposal has its critics. After all, it would increase taxes and basically hand over management of our health-care system to the Federal Government, but it's about time we address health-care reform again in a more serious tone rather than as part of some political campaign.

(On the flipside: Here's a link to a music clip lovingly supplied by some anti-Hillary Clinton health-care reform fans. Enjoy.)
