Krugman on Health Care

Says the laureate...
The whole world is in recession. But the United States is the only wealthy country in which the economic catastrophe will also be a health care catastrophe — in which millions of people will lose their health insurance along with their jobs, and therefore lose access to essential care.

Has he never heard of COBRA? The program that lets the unemployed keep their health insurance for eighteen months or until they find a new job?

Or is he ignoring it in a bald attempt to advance a political agenda? Either way he doesn't look too intelligent, let alone persuasive.
