Re health care: Attn. Sen. Lincoln

I think it's news when Wal-Mart, the Service Employees International Union and the liberal Center for American Progress issue a statement in support of employer "mandates," or required health insurance for workers. Yes, the plan must be "broad and fair." Yes they want efficiencies, etc. But when the nation's largest employer says it will pay more for its workers because it believes the rising cost of uninsured Americans is causing the system to founder, I think we might be getting somewhere.

Here's the joint statement.

Here's a letter from Wal-Mart.
