Last week, I headed out to Missoula to give a talk on behest of Matt Singer's Forward Montana. Perks to giving talks in Missoula: 1) They happen in bars. 2) Wearing jeans makes you seem dressed up. There's literally a pitcher of scotch ale on the chair next to me in case I get thirsty during the talk. Take note, DC: This makes panel discussions more interesting.

As you might expect, the talk is on health care, and the basic argument is, first, that health care is a political problem more than it is a policy problem, and second, that the big question is not the public plan but how you pay for the damn thing. Also, I use a lot of car analogies.
