WHY??? We have problem with insurance not "healthcare".

First of all, health insurance is part of healthcare. Secondly, I saw topics and discussions unrelated to health insurance but still related directly to healthcare being posted and discussed. Given that, it made more sense to change it.

"Healthcare" isn't the probem. Insurance is.

Actually, both are a problem. Healthcare has just as much wrong with it as insurance does.

Yes, people really don't like to have too much text in front of them or wait too long for anything.

Whatever I can do to make Patrick.net smaller and/or faster generally gets it more users and more activity. That's why I'm not eager to add another category. If people have to read even a bit more, they are that much less likely to comment.

Also, it's true that education is mostly a political question.

It is more accurate with the new name.
