Re: Appeals Court finally gets it right.... ruling against forced ObamaCare
Understood. While I believe the UK system is overall superior to that of the US, I think the single-payer plan is better than both. Single payer is not actually "socialized medicine" in the UK sense. Physicians remain in private practice, and hospitals are still allowed to be private.
It is actually, instead, "socialized insurance". We already have socialized insurance in the United States (Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, etc.), but it is not comprehensive, and is not universal. Universalizing Medicare would allow us to dump Medicaid and the other programs, offer universal access, and save 40% per year of what our government currently spends on health care.
