    It's time for national health insurance - By Ron Gettelfinger, The Detroit News
    The UAW has long advocated single-payer national health insurance as the fairest and most cost-efficient way to provide affordable, quality, comprehensive health care to every American regardless of income.

    Sound impossible? It shouldn't. We already have more than 40 years experience with a single-payer system in America. It's called Medicare, and it may not be perfect, but it sure works better than the privatized part of our health care system.
