My experience is similar.
But wait to be attacked because reality plays no role in our Right Wing friends' determinations.
Ask them how many countries with government run single payor health care have reverted to the American system ...(Answer -None).
Apparently government run/single payor health care is very popular in the countries that have adopted it - which is the entire industrialized world,(except us).
Exaggeration is typical of those who do no research. BTW, you forgot to blame the 2 clones.
The socialist countries you mentioned have 3 different plans of socialized medicine.
Single Payer, Two-Tier, and Insurance Mandate.
You will notice at the link I give, there are a number of big player countries NOT listed.
You will also notice many of the countries listed are way over their head in debt, just like America. The UK already has cut back billions for health care, guess Who's going to pay for the cuts? Individuals who want health care.
Socialized medicine is nothing more than Government control of health care and any sensible person knows government wastes $10 for every dollar spent, your money.
I would rather spend my money with insurance companies, knowing I'm getting good health care, than with the government who wastes it.
