Never said that, but if you can't refute what I actually did say, go right on and have fun with your mythsbut hey, if letting you call the Ryan Plan "socialism" will get you to vote for it.... a rose by any other name. go right on ahead with your bad self.
No, I'm referring to costs.you are mistaking "costs" with "expenditures".
You can cherry pick all you want and find one or two areas where the US does better, but other nations with socialized health care get better outcomes for less moneythis is incorrect. particularly when it comes to access and severe condition survival rates, the US system is superior.
Medicaid doesn't cover everything (rationing) and ER's only have to stabilize a patient (another form of rationing)this is incorrect. not only do we have Medicaid to take care of those who have difficulty affording medical care, our emergency rooms are required by law to treat any who come in.
Again, if you think socialism doesn't allow market forces to work, then you don't know what socialism isagain. whatever you want to call it. but if you think that applying market pressure to a corporatist system in which costs are socialized while benefits are individualized is "socialism".... then you really don't have any idea what you are talking about.
Sure, it hasn'tmy position hasn't changed at all. this isn't exactly the first time I've argued precisely this point.
And the NR is ridiculously biased, and I'm still waiting for you to tell us when the US Feds cut spending massively in the last 100 years. I can wait
