I don't know. It is probably an idea of these republicans. Did this supreme court prove constitutionality of wars, dropping bombs on innocent people in another countries etc.?

That's the only important thing to Republicans, that the stocks are going to be OK...that their buddies on Wall St. will make money.

ALL health care should be run on a not-for-profit basis. And all goods and services should have prices set, as other countries do with theirs. Combine that with a single payer setup and you'd see our healthcare costs drop drastically in America.

It all depends on who sets the prices and who has to pay. All you have to do is look at Canada and the UK. They also have a private healthcare system...and many people use it to get the care they want.

Typically brilliant, well-informed rebuttal from a right wing genius. Speaks for itself, really.

At least your nickname's a good one.:)

Theirs are different. Canada's is basically a single payer setup, while Britain's is a National Health Service where the government runs the hospitals, employs the doctors, etc.

I much prefer the single payer system, and I don't think Americans would accept the other one anyway. Although it's still much, much cheaper per capita than ours.

Well, the UK has an alternative method of healthcare that allows one to go to a doctor in private practice. It is considered to be expensive, but it is an alternative.
Canadians have been coming to the USA for faster treatment since the waiting list for surgery and specialized treatment is so long in Canada.
As for a single payer system...if the federal government administers it the system won't work for all. It must be administered in each state....or not allowed at all.
