More on the Democratic Party Platform

Yesterday I noted a bit of what looks to me like good news about the Democratic Party draft platform plank on health care. Today I discovered that Jonathan Tasini over on Working Life sees this platform plank as a defeat, as the Dems giving up on the possibility of single-payer. (Tasini's viewpoint is an interesting contrast to the thoughts of Donna Smith, who I quoted yesterday.) Tasini does think the platform is very good on "the right to organize and other similar worker protection issues."

Talk To Action has an interesting analysis of the platform's treatment of abortion rights.

A link to the entire draft platform, courtesy of Working Life, can be found here.
