I agree with you except on the govt health care thing.<quoted text>
they do it because in the 80's hospitals became a for profit industry. Your post is the best reason for single payer (gov't) health care. Hospitals are a monopoly. You can't shop around when you have an emergency medical condition. No can you if your doctor is associated with a particular hospital. They have you over a barrel and can charge whatever they want and they do.
Time magazine did a great investigative report on it a few weeks back
Obamacare will restrict us all, patients and hospitals.
Besides, most of us won't even benefit from Obamacare. We'll still have to purchase insurance or pay a hefty tax penalty.
