Matthew Yglesias notes that a Switzerland-plan compromise might be viable on health care reform, since Switzerland has universal all-private coverage with no public plan, which might be acceptable to Republicans.

The key point here: the US has the world’s most expensive health insurance, about double the OECD average. There’s only one other advanced economy with health insurance costs way above that OECD average. It is Switzerland. Until last year my family had a worldwide health care coverage plan from AON that covered us anywhere in the world, except for two countries whose health care costs are so outlandish that coverage there required an upgrade. Those two countries were the United States and Switzerland.
